Their task: provide a coherent answer to our national anxiety over health care.
Here’s how they can. 👇🏽
Perhaps it was because of their failed attempt to repeal Obamacare...
This gave the left an opening to attack conservatives as wanting to kill people with pre-existing conditions (which is obviously egregiously false).
Liberals used the opportunity to build the case for replacing Obamacare with even more government-run health care.
More than half of the House Democrats have signed onto a bill implementing this vision, as have 16 senators.
Most would lose their current coverage because it would become illegal. Nor could individuals or families purchase coverage outside of the government’s system.
It would reduce access to care and dramatically increase wait times. In Canada, where health care is government-run, some wait nearly three months to get an MRI.
Moreover, it would ensure that everyone could access a quality, private coverage arrangement of their choice.
We found that when states have been given even a little bit of freedom from Obamacare’s mandates, they’ve been able to lower projected 2019 premiums (by up to 43%) while ensuring the sick retain access to care.
This is a sharp change from 2017, when Congress fell short and failed to unify behind an Obamacare replacement plan.
Our families cannot afford continued failure.
Efforts to refine and improve this proposal can and will continue...
