While the mainstream media continues to insist there is no alternative to ObamaCare, one such significant option has rapidly gained the support of over 100 House Republicans: The American Health Care Reform Act (AHCRA).
HR 3121 would not only repeal Barack Obama’s greatest assault on American liberties; it would actually achieve the goals of better, cheaper, and more easily attainable healthcare the cynical Obama lied about while “selling” his plan.
The bill, which is being spearheaded by Louisiana Republican Steve Scalise, contains fewer than 200 pages (instead of the 2700 in Obamacare.)
The AHCRA will:-Fully repeal President Obama’s health care law, eliminating billions in taxes and thousands of pages of unworkable regulations and mandates that are driving up health care costs.
-Spur competition to lower health care costs by allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines and enable small businesses to pool together and get the same buying power as large corporations.
-Reform medical malpractice laws in a commonsense way that limits trial lawyer fees and non-economic damages while maintaining strong protections for patients.
-Provide tax reform that allows families and individuals to deduct health care costs just like companies, leveling the playing field and providing all Americans with a standard deduction for health insurance.
-Expand access to Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), increasing the amount of pre-tax dollars individuals can deposit into portable savings accounts to be used for health care expenses.
-Safeguard individuals with pre-existing conditions from being discriminated against purchasing health insurance by bolstering state-based high risk pools and extending HIPAA-guaranteed availability protections.
-Protect the unborn by ensuring no federal funding of abortions.
If the Republicans introduce it as “The Repeal Obamacare Act of 2014″, maybe the media will notice it.
