ALL THAT THE REFORMS REQUIRE TO SUCCEED...:

Republicans Offer a Plan to Replace Obamacare (RUSSELL BERMAN, 6/21/16, The Atlantic)

The GOP plan would:

Expand health savings accounts
Offer refundable tax credits to subsidize the purchase of private health insurance and decrease dependence on employer-sponsored plans
Cap the tax exclusion for employer-provided health insurance
Allow people to purchase insurance across state lines
Provide $25 billion in funding for high-risk pools over 10 years
Devolve Medicaid to the states, either through a block grant or a "per capita allotment"
Partially privatize Medicare beginning in 2024 through a "premium support" option


...are the HSAs and the mandate the Right opposed.
