I'm sorry, but this is just so disingenuous, let alone hypocritical, that it's really getting hard to believe that Republicans are even intellligent human adults anymore.
So, your "reform" would be to take away the people's right to redress in the courts and to impose federal rules on the states? Really? Wow! You Republicans really do stand for individual liberty and states rights! What a joke. And for what? I've never seen a single study that showed that tort "reform" (which is just sleazy code-speak for taking away the people's right to redress in the courts) would cut any more than a few percentage points off the ridiculous healthcare overhead, and the fix on healthcare inflation would only be temporary. As for selling insurance accross state lines - what's the plan? Are you going to politely ask the states to get together on that? Are you going to impose federal regulations (Heaven forbid!)? So what's the point? All you'd accomplish is another rush to the bottom, as selective private insurers cull the customers they don't want from those they do until we have millions and millions more people uninsured. Great plan.
No, the GOP has NO plan to address the healthcare crisis. You do, however, have a plan to make more money on your insurnce investments. Like Galbraith said, "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
