Obamacare reduces red tape on that front. It makes the single largest improvement in American history towards being able to easily buy health insurance across state lines, something everybody and their mother wants.
Again, this was a Republican idea. It's simply been accepted and pragmatically supported by a Democratic President who was willing to settle on it as a compromise.
A compromise that has been treated as the second coming of the Third Reich by the GOP.
I agree with most of this.. it was still half assed. I would prefer to have seen giant swaths of red tape removed instead we got significant barriers reduced but nothing close to free market. Like I said, half assed but it is the right direction and has my support.
