Ken Buck on Health Care
ObamaCare requires insurance exchanges to appoint "navigators" to provide "fair, accurate, and impartial information to consumers." The Colorado regulations require that navigators have "a criminal background check and are free of conviction of financial crimes, crimes against children or vulnerable adults, and violent offenses." Coloradans will not rest easy knowing that drug dealers, burglars, and some identity thieves may have access to our most sensitive personal information.

Buck insisted he would repeal it--getting a cheer from supporters. Buck said the law was produced by a "corrupt" process, especially the special concessions granted Nebraska and Louisiana senators to win their votes. "And I don't believe in centralizing the authority in the American government over one-seventh of our economy," he said, calling it the "nationalization" of U.S. health care.
We can do better. Congress needs to repeal Obamacare and enact free-market reforms that will preserve our freedom and drive down costs. Federal policy should encourage individuals to buy high-deductible policies and to establish health savings accounts.
