The federal government doesn’t need to “exercise control over one-sixth of the nation’s economy in order to address the issue of health care,” a Georgia Congressman said today.
“Recent reports citing an alarming rise in health care premiums is even more evidence that the President’s health care package is under-delivering on the issues of access, affordability, and quality of care,” U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., said in a statement. “This news is a preview of the future increases in costs to employers, families, and individuals that will come as President Obama and the Washington bureaucracy attempt to control prices while imposing mandates. It does not have to be this way.
“There are positive, patient-centered solutions that put patients in charge of their health care decisions,” Price added. “We must get Washington out of the way by repealing the President’s health care law and pursue positive health care reforms that empower individuals, not Washington.”
