The House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA) was NOT the full repeal of Obamacare promised to voters, but it did move the debate forward. More must be done to revitalize our health insurance markets and drive down costs -- that should start now in the Senate.
As the process continues in the Senate, conservative lawmakers must ensure three things happen: repeal Obamacare’s taxes, reform Medicaid, and empower states to regulate their own health care markets.
1. Repeal Obamacare Taxes:
It’s time to repeal Obamacare taxes once and for all. The House-passed AHCA achieved this goal, and now the Senate must do the same in their final version of the bill.
It’s a very straightforward concept, this is a tax cut that will lower health care costs and put money back in the pockets of the American people -- money that was seized by the Obama Administration.2. Reform Medicaid:
Medicaid was unsustainable and ineffective prior to Obamacare, but then it was radically expanded. At a minimum, the Senate should roll back expansion like the House version of the AHCA did.
In fact, conservatives should encourage their Senate colleagues to improve these reforms in order to minimize waste and fraud, and save our country from bankruptcy.3. Empower States:
Under Obamacare, the federal government basically became the nation’s default insurance commissioner. The House-passed bill allowed states to opt out of some of the premium-increasing insurance mandates created by Obamacare.
Now the Senate must give states the ability to opt out of these harmful Title I regulations too. Empowering states and giving them more control to regulate their health insurance markets is essential to draining the swamp in Washington.The Senate is continuing to work on their bill, and a final version could be unveiled later this month. We must do our part by urging conservatives to push for these three things to ensure the Senate repeals as much of Obamacare as possible.
