The market for health care has largely been destroyed, and in its wake remains a complicated, confusing system in dire need of fixing. Prices are too high and choices are too few, and the federal government’s response has long been more government control and more money.
There is another path, one that I call “Health-care Freedom.” Health-care freedom operates under the assumption of four core principles: 1) no one should stand in the way of you and your doctor, 2) employers should have the ability to provide—and you should have the ability to save health-care dollars tax-free with the ability to spend those dollars how you see fit, 3) you should be in control of your health-care options, and 4) there should be a safety net to ensure no one falls through the cracks.
Healthcare Freedom, in an age of technology, job mobility, and unprecedented market innovation, is a 21st-century solution to our broken system. Empowering patients to control their own health care will eliminate the pre-existing condition problem, drive prices down, increase choices, and improve quality. We can decide whether we are going to bankrupt ourselves with a government-run system or choose a path that will allow everyone to have access to great care.
