Obamacare is destroying our healthcare markets.
Costs have skyrocketed, and employers are dropping workers to part-time status, paychecks are stagnating or shrinking, jettisoning thousands of Wisconsinites off their insurance altogether.
As a manufacturing executive, I’ve seen this cost escalation first hand.
I’m for personal sovereignty. Wisconsinites should be able to choose what doctor they want to see or what health care plan they want to buy.
Here are a few common sense, market-based fixes that will drive costs down and provide ease of access to healthcare for all Wisconsinites:
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), portable insurance accounts, permitting the purchase of health plans across state lines, tax deductible personal plans, the elimination of mandated coverage, and the repeal of regulations that inhibit choice and competition.
We use free markets to buy televisions, cars, houses, groceries, clothes, and hotel rooms. Free markets deliver high quality goods and services and low prices. A free market approach to health care would drastically improve our insurance markets.
