Without question, America has the best medical care in the world. In fact, some of the latest medical research and cutting edge procedures are being developed and preformed right here in Central Ohio. Unfortunately, affordability is often an impediment to receiving high-quality care.
I do not support the efforts by Congress to create a one-size-fits-all, government-run health care system. Americans should be free to choose their doctors and their treatment options.
Instead of the one-size-fits-all, government-run health care mandate, I believe Congress should enact legislation to fix problems in our current healthcare system. Congress should address the issue of cost. Congress must also address the need to expand access to health savings accounts, allow for incentives to live healthy lifestyles, pass price transparency and allow small businesses to pool their health care risk.
