Our current healthcare system, formulated under Obama, has hurt us economically and has not improved our options. The excessively high premiums have made it difficult for many Americans to purchase health insurance and have burdened small business owners with the high costs of insuring employees. I believe we need to replace or restructure the ACA (ObamaCare) in a way that makes sense, is economically sustainable for all Americans, and that maintains select common-sense provisions such as coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Only a competitive, free market, transparent and patient-centered health plan will bring the cost down. We need to implement common sense solutions to lower costs, improve quality, increase accessibility, flexibility and choice. We need more transparency from the doctors and hospitals so that patients can know up front what their costs will be. We also need to fight waste, fraud, and abuse in our healthcare system.
