The 2017 budget is a travesty and should be rejected. There is no sane rationale for adding 10 trillion dollars in deficit spending over the period. It is the height of hypocrisy that Republicans - who claim to be fiscally conservative and advocates of smaller government - to support this. You cannot borrow your way to prosperity. It applies to individuals as well as government. Stop spending money you do not have. As far as ACA, amend it to improve it. Nothing is perfect out of the gate. So modify it. Private sector prices for health services and tests need to be transparent to consumers. They are highly variable across the country and outrageously expensive because they are hidden to us until you get your surprise bill. Healthcare sector can justifiably be accused of price gouging and consumer protection is warranted. Focus on that to bring healthcare costs down.
