Obamacare Repeal

The Health Care Choices Proposal: Charting a New Path to a Down Payment on Patient-Centered, Consumer-Driven Health Care Reform

from Heritage Foundation,

On Friday, a Texas District Court judge struck down ALL parts of Obamacare and agreed with over 20 Attorneys General by deeming the health care law unconstitutional. But the solution isn’t to continue to let the courts legislate, rather, now is the time for Congress to take the extra momentum that the courts provided and use every legislative tool to take down the failed health care law. Since the beginning, Heritage Action has pushed for the repeal of Obamacare and with many legislative tools at Congress’ disposal, now is the time for our members of Congress to do the right thing before the Democrats take control of the House in 2019.

After more than eight years of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, health insurance costs continue to spiral out of control, particularly for millions of Americans trapped in the individual and small-group markets. Choice and competition in most of the states’ individual health insurance markets has virtually collapsed, leaving millions of Americans with either limited, or no, choice of health coverage. Patient access to physicians and medical specialists has declined, as health plan provider networks have progressively narrowed. The Health Care Choices Proposal offers Congress a path to reset the course of failed health care reform as a down payment on further needed reforms.
