There is widespread consensus that President Obama’s signature health care law is broken and changes must be made to protect the American people from its negative impacts. Not only is the government takeover of health care harming the people it was designed to help, but it has also severely damaged our entire health care market. It has not delivered on the promises President Obama made; instead we have seen higher premiums, skyrocketing deductibles, and fewer choices that have put our health care system on an unsustainable course to failure. While many have purchased insurance through the health exchanges, this coverage does not truly equal care. Americans deserve a better way that makes health care less expensive and more affordable for all Americans.
