Twitter Health Care Reform #HCR House - Senate Compromise

What will it take to pass the House-Senate health care compromise? There are three strategies that will target six states and three groups.

1. You can win moral legislators by tightening up regulations on abortion in specific states.
  • In Nebraska Ben Nelson
  • In Arkansas Blanche Lincoln
  • In Louisiana Mary L. Landrieu
2. You can attack your own party’s supporters which will be perceived as compromise. Senators who attack their own political capitol may find it more desirable to retire, than to run again. Senators like Christopher Dodd and Byron Dorgan are good examples.

  • Create incentives for Trial attorneys to reverse defensive medical practices.
  • Tax organized Labor’s Cadillac benefit plans.
  • Donut Hole Medicare Advantage enrollees
3. You can offer health care subsidies to states that are struggling financially from the recession.
  • California
  • Florida
  • Nevada
Nancy Pelosi is the Speaker of the House from California. Harry Reid is the majority leader from Nevada. Florida has some of the highest percentage of senior citizens in the country. A combination of all of these strategies will win comprehensive health care reform.
