The quality of healthcare in the United States is second to none. Democrats in Washington have aligned with special interests to force a radical overhaul of our health care system. This will lead to rationing of care for seniors and an ever-increasing tax burden on our citizens. Our small businesses struggle to make payroll as it is -how can we expect them to do so with additional burdens? We need to tackle rising healthcare costs in a way that broadens access to care, fulfills our promise to seniors and protects the vital relationship patients have with their doctors. We need common-sense solutions like eliminating rampant fraud and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid and expanding affordable private insurance options through opening the boundaries between the states. We also need real transparency on quality and price.
