Health Care

Health is a public good. It is in our national interest to create a health care system that balances quality, access, and cost.

Even though millions of Americans still lack health insurance, the cost of medical care, and with it the cost of Medicare and Medicaid, continue to increase out of proportion to any other category of government spending. Through 50 years of patchwork regulation, the US has created a health care system that achieves passing grades for quality, poor grades for coverage, and failing grades for cost control.
