This week will be the most consequential week in the fight to repeal Obamacare in the last seven years.
Conservatives should not support any bill that maintains the regulatory architecture of Obamacare, and Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) does just that.Repealing Obamacare means repealing the underlying regulations that create the core foundation of federally controlled healthcare.
Conservatives must work to ensure any legislation that claims to repeal Obamacare actually repeals the regulations, such as:
Guaranteed Issue: Obamacare’s guaranteed issue mandate forces insurance companies to give coverage to individuals that try to game the insurance system. This provision is responsible for significant premium increases.
Community Rating: Obamacare’s community rating mandates insurance companies offer what amounts to one-size-fits-all policies. These rules cause premium costs to increase significantly for many Americans.
Essential Health Benefits: Obamacare’s EHBs force insurance companies to offer plans that cover a wide array of medical procedures, including many that are irrelevant for certain groups. EHBs make inexpensive health insurance all but illegal.Congressional Republicans cannot truly claim to have repealed Obamacare unless they repeal big-government regulations such as Guaranteed Issue, Community Rating and Essential Health Benefits. That will allow competition and innovation to drive down healthcare costs.
It’s time to ramp up the pressure. Call your Representative today and demand a real repeal of Obamacare and its regulatory regime.
