U.S. Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10), member of the GOP Doctor's Caucus, yesterday introduced legislation, H.R. 299, to repeal Obamacare and replace it with four commonsense solutions:
"During the health care debate, the majority of Americans opposed a government takeover of health care. As various aspects of the law are implemented, opposition has only grown. At every town hall meeting, Georgians demanded that Washington repeal Obamacare. In order to fulfill my commitment, I have introduced a bill to repeal the health care law and replace it with four simple, commonsense solutions that would lower costs and increase accessibility without government interference."
Allows all individuals and businesses to deduct 100 percent of their health care expenses, including insurance premiums;
Strengthens and expands new avenues for affordable health care for sick Americans through state high-risk pools;
Expands choice and competition by allowing consumers to shop for health insurance across state lines;
And creates association health plans, which would allow businesses, individuals and any entity to form pools that will increase availability and allow their sheer size to negotiate lower costs for their employees or members.
