Health Care

“Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them. . . .government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” – Ronald Reagan

 I will fight for your freedom to make your own healthcare decisions. Granted our medical system needs reform, but a government solution is more of a problem than a solution. Health care costs are spiraling out of control because there is no incentive for doctors or patients to control costs. We should allow individual policy holders the same tax benefits as companies receive under group benefits. We should encourage doctor/patient payment relationships with HSA’s and similar tools providing for less waste, greater care, and lower cost. We should also stop the wasteful use of emergency rooms for non-emergency care by the uninsured.  Transferring control of healthcare to the government will only ensure higher costs and reduced quality.
