Sam Clovis on Health Care
A: Repeal ObamaCare.
True healthcare reform should be accomplished by examining market solutions and allowing those markets to work. The Congress of the United States should advance tort reform and repeal the McCarron-Ferguson Act, thus allowing individuals in any state to shop for health insurance from any provider. By doing just these two things, estimates are that healthcare costs would be cut by up to 50%. Today, we face premium increases at near triple digit levels with no end in sight.
The current healthcare legislation is already leading to rationing, reduced care availability and will ultimately lead to fewer healthcare professionals available to treat an ever-increasing population. This is not only bad for the nation, it is immoral. This law must be repealed.
Clovis praised two senators, Lee and Cruz, who fueled the movement to use the shutdown as leverage to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. Clovis said he'd keep the pieces that allow adult children to stay on a parent's policy until age 26, and the pieces related to high-risk and pre-existing conditions. But he said it's an immoral law because it adds $150 billion a year in national debt.
"I've read the bill, and I challenge anyone else in this building to say they've read the bill. And I've read every word of it," Clovis said.
