There is no denying our health care system is in serious need of reform, but as we consider the current legislation before Congress we must first do no harm. There has been a tremendous lack of transparency to the legislative process and no opportunity for a bipartisan sharing of ideas.
I believe two of the most important steps we should take as we consider health care legislation are: (1) let every American keep their current coverage if they want to keep it and (2) help Americans address the costs of health care coverage that push them into the ranks of the uninsured. I believe there are many steps we can and should take that solve this issue without turning over more of the health care system to the government. The government has a poor track record of running programs which are financially strapped and unsustainable.
It is important for you to be informed about this costly government takeover of health care and to check the facts. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some valuable resources that explore the health care reform bill and the effect it will have on Americans.
