Health Care: Reducing Costs and Improving Results
It is time for the two parties to stop fighting over how to pay for an inefficient, costly health care system and instead find ways to reduce the crippling cost of health care for families and businesses. Before and after the passage of the Affordable Care Act, US health costs were--and continue to be--the highest in the world. We need to enact reform that will incentivize wellness instead of incentivizing more procedures. We also need to use innovation, harness the private sector, and increase transparency so that people know what they are paying for and how much they are paying. We should reform the Affordable Care Act to meet these objectives.
