California Congressman, Devin Nunes proposes the Choice in Healthcare Act which would replace Medicare and Medicaid with a simple debit card.
Whether it is struck down by the Supreme Court, defunded by Congress, or simply collapses from its unsustainable costs and the impossibly complicated bureaucracy it seeks to impose, ObamaCare won’t work. It will depress the economy, increase the national debt, discourage medical innovation, and erode the quality of health care.
The fundamental mistake of ObamaCare’s architects is that they refused to recognize the systemic failure of government-provided health-care. Medicare and Medicaid had begun malfunctioning long before Nancy Pelosi bribed and bullied Congress into approving President Obama’s health-care bill. Now we need to begin assembling the components of a replacement plan that works better than ObamaCare and more efficiently than the current system.
To that end, I am introducing the Choice in Healthcare Act, which will create a voluntary, 10-year pilot program for a new health-care delivery system, beginning in June 2013.
