The US healthcare system is the most expensive in the world--by far--yet it produces mediocre or poor results compared with other developed countries on important healthcare quality measures such as infant mortality and life expectancy. The Republican Party is fighting to repeal ObamaCare, and hopes it will be struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court. If that happens, do the Republicans have any plan to reform the existing healthcare system, or are they happy with the status quo?

Yes they did. Given that Roberts went with the majority, I am a bit surprised it wasn't a 6-3 decision with Kennedy going along with him. I wonder what his reasoning was for not doing so?
Does anyone know how those monopolist state laws came into being in the first place? I don't, but my guess is through lobbying by those inurance companies ... but I could easily by wrong at this point. + Do you know why the two 'Cares were created?
In a word, yes, lobbying. The two Cares were part of Johnson's Great Society project. He could only get kids and the elderly covered due to widespread opposition to a one size fits all plan. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
