Sam Rohrer on Health Care

 


Federal role in healthcare must be dramatically reduced

Not many years ago, the health care system in the US was the undisputed standard setter for the world--the highest in quality, greatest in advancement. Yet, something changed. Sam Rohrer believes that we should not be forced to accept less care and a lower standard. He believes that the doctor-patient relationship must be restored, that the confidentiality of health care information must be protected, and that the Federal Government's role in healthcare must be dramatically reduced.

ObamaCare's centralized system is dangerous & costly

Repealing ObamaCare: Americans do not want the federal government telling them or their doctor what care they approve of. Like you, Sam Rohrer believes that a centralized system of health care is dangerous, costly, and unsustainable, which is why he believes that ObamaCare must be totally repealed. Sam has fought his entire career for free-market solutions as Individual Health Savings Accounts, shopping for health insurance across state lines, and medical malpractice reform.

ObamaCare is big government mentality

Candidates were asked about the problems of the Affordable Care Act. Scaringi said it's not affordable, but costly. "It is government intrusion," he said.

Rohrer called the Affordable Care Act a "big government mentality." He said even before the measure was passed, the nation's health care system was being incrementally destroyed. Now, as time goes on, it will become increasingly difficult to repeal Affordable Care.
