This explains Dr. Paul's positions on healthcare pretty clearly - interview and transcript.
A very good point made by Ron Paul about the difference between an insurance and a "prepaid service" (about 10 minutes in). An insurance takes care of large unexpected costs. But when it pays for even the first dollar, then it isn't an insurance anymore, but a system for prepayment.
It's brilliant to see though that kind of newspeech! This even educated me. It's always a pleasure to hear him.
...just a wonderful interview. Once again I am impressed by this man.
So sad that Dr. Paul is the only rational candidate in the Republican field and at the same time so vilified. Who else could so easily handle an interview like this?
