Minnesota Is the Health Care Leader, Not Washington. America’s health care system is broken, but Obamacare is not the answer. Before we can make the kind of changes Americans deserve, we need to repeal the “Unaffordable Care Act” and replace it with a patient-centered, market-based solution that will lower costs and increase accessibility for all Americans. Minnesota has some of the best health care minds in the entire world. Instead of looking to bureaucrats in Washington, we can take charge and develop homegrown solutions for health care. By restoring power to the states, we can free Minnesota to become a laboratory for innovation and a standard-bearer for health care solutions that work.
Covering Those With Pre-Existing Conditions. Despite all the promises made during the health care debate, there are still Americans with pre-existing conditions who are struggling to find or afford coverage. This is unacceptable. When we repeal and replace Obamacare, we need to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions actually have access to affordable insurance plans that cover their illnesses.
Stop the Job Killing Medical Device Tax. Al Franken’s support of the medical device tax is hurting Minnesota’s economy and punishing the most vulnerable among us. This tax is the perfect example of how out-of-touch Washington is with the needs of everyday Americans. We must repeal this job-killing tax along with the rest of Obamacare and replace it with policies that bring down health care costs while encouraging economic growth.
