Joe DioGuardi: Purpose of reform should have been to reduce the cost

Gillibrand said she's concerned about insurance companies raising premiums before the changes kick in. "It doesn't really start until 2014, and I will tell you many insurers have raised their rates," Gillibrand said. "I want a full investigation."

DioGuardi said the health care law should be repealed and restructured to rein in spending. "The whole purpose of health care reform should have been to reduce the cost of health care," he said. "It did not."

DioGuardi said the health care law should be repealed and restructured to rein in spending. "Health care reform did not reduce the cost of health care." he said.
