Republicans propose Obamacare alternative

See also

Even months after its implementation, President Obama's healthcare law continues to be a subject of debate and even controversy.

The embattled "Obamacare" law has faced numerous hurdles, from a website that did not work to Republicans continuing to oppose the law. The website glitches may also have impacted the number of sign-ups, especially among young adults, since it was recently revealed that not as many young adults (who were by and large the target market of the law) signed up as was anticipated.

Now, rather than just simply opposing the law, many Republican lawmakers are getting ready to propose their own healthcare mandates, to replace the healthcare law. The Republican's proposed law would likely include some of the most popular elements of President Obama's law, although nothing concrete about these plans have yet been released.

However, is replacing one controversial law with another, likely-to-be debatable law really the answer for our healthcare system? Does anyone really have the answers to effectively overhauling our country's healthcare system?

What do you think Republicans can do to effectively fix healthcare in the country? What alternatives do you think would be best?
