Nashua Telegraph - Thompson Says He'd Overhaul Health Care

Republican presidential candidate Tommy Thompson said the health-care system will collapse in seven years without more government attention to wellness, investment in technology and an unleashed, free market to offer insurance to those who lack coverage.

The former secretary of Health and Human Services said higher taxes and government control would do more harm than good, but he agreed an overhaul is needed.

"We can do it. It requires some tough work, a little luck," Thompson said during remarks to the Politics and Eggs forum at the Bedford Village Inn on Tuesday. "If you want to change health care, and I believe it is worth saving, you have to do it."
