Why the Cruz amendment is smart policy

Stephen Moore:

Republicans are finally getting smart on Obamacare. It took one of the savviest Republican senators — Ted Cruz of Texas, with an assist from Mike Lee of Utah — to get the GOP ‎to figure out how to replace Obamacare, reduce premiums, and save money for the government. And all without alienating millions of voters.

How it does that:

The Cruz amendment — which has been inserted into the GOP Senate health plan — is smart,because it doesn’t take anything away from anyone. If you want Obamacare — you can have it. You can have the coverage for the 10 “essential benefits,‎” you can have the subsidies and the exchanges that were supposed to save $2,500 per family. It’s still there for you.

I agree. It is a difficult challenge for politicians to take away a government benefit after you’ve become accustomed to having it, regardless of its effects on the government budget or taxpayers.
