Title: Statement of Opposition to Federal Health Care Proposal

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a concurrent resolution that urges Congress and the President to refuse to enact any legislation that imposes further restrictions on any state's ability to regulate health care, imposes additional financial burdens on the states with respect to health care, or limits the ability of consumers and businesses to establish new models for health care.

Highlights:
-Alleges that the health care proposals in the U.S. Congress focus on enrollment expansion rather than cost containment. -Alleges that the health care proposals in the U.S. Congress include "laudable authorizations" but lack "significant cost containment." -Alleges that the health care proposals in the U.S. Congress include provisions to improve quality of care but fail to make the changes that are necessary to link outcomes and payment. -Alleges that "the best hope for health system reform lies with individual states." -Specifies that the Legislature and the Governor urges the U.S. Congress and President to enact legislation that increases flexibility for states under federal laws and regulations related to health care, and encourages states to create health care demonstration projects with the potential for replication elsewhere.
