I understand all too well the experience of being a patient in socialized medicine, both in the military and the VA. When no one is held accountable and there’s no competition, quality of care suffers and prices skyrocket.
We need a free market, patient-centered health care system that gets the government out of your doctor’s office. Unfortunately, ObamaCare has caused health care costs to go up, kicked millions of Americans off of their health insurance plans, and increased taxes, all of which have been detrimental to the health care system.
Our goal should be to implement a healthcare system that puts patients first, encourages competition, allows consumers to buy health insurance across state lines, and expands health savings accounts. Our vision for healthcare should be centered on choice, customizability, and innovation, with sensible safety nets that ensure those with pre-existing conditions are not left behind.
