I am a registered Independent, but tend to vote republican. My understanding is that republicans in general do not favor universal health care. I do, with some qualifications. I believe basic health care should be provided to everyone, via subsidies, determined by means testing. I also believe that there should be some mechanism by which individuals participating in such a program would have incentives to live healthier lifestyles to the extent they are able. How would that be accomplished? Iâ€™m honestly not sure.
