It’s not a secret that Obamacare is wreaking havoc on the health-care sector, and this is prompting many Americans to ask for an escape. However, we wouldn’t want to go back to the health system as it existed before the Affordable Care Act.
Recognizing this, the Heritage Foundation last week released a definitive compilation of health-care solutions that make patients the primary decisionmakers. Our commonsense solutions are based on five principles:
Let Americans have total choice and control with regard to their health insurance.
Allow free-market forces, with light regulation, to incentivize insurers and health-care providers to offer affordable and effective health coverage.
Encourage businesses to provide portable health-insurance benefits to their employees.
Help the most vulnerable Americans through the states, non-government organizations, and the free market.
Protect Americans’ right of conscience and unborn children.
