"And in their spare time, contrary to the very vocal wishes of the American public, they passed legislation that will do great harm to the finest health care system in the world. The Health Care Bill is the greatest assault on our freedom in my lifetime. It must be repealed." - Ron Johnson

Ron will vote to repeal the Health Care Bill and replace it with market-based solutions that will include: portability, malpractice reform, mandate reduction, insurance purchase across state lines, lower costs, and a safety net for those with pre-existing conditions.

The Health Care Bill is a $1 trillion experiment that will lead to higher cost, lower quality health care and rationing by government bureaucrats. A free- market approach to health care reform is critical to ensuring doctors and patients stay in control of the decision-making process. The free market is essential for the development of new drugs, treatments and medical procedures that will save lives and keep our country on the forefront of medical innovation.

The Health Care Bill will further bust an already broken budget. Obama Administration estimates are simply not believable. When Medicare was passed in 1965, the government estimated its cost in 1990 would be $12 billion. The actual cost in 1990 was $111 billionÂ…nearly ten times the original estimate. The estimated cost of the Health Care Bill will not be any more accurate.
