I said nay to something similar and received the following from Senator Pat Toumey in quotes. "President Obama's health care law is fundamentally wrong in its approach to improving our nation's health care system." But is has provided healthcare for more than $20 million people. "It forces people to buy overpriced health plans they do not want, hikes taxes, and puts important and personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians and bureaucrats instead of patients and their doctors" but it has provided healthcare to more than 20 million people and fixed major loopholes in the system. "News of skyrocketing health insurance premium increases-32.5 percent on average in Pennsylvania-coupled with the fact that 40 percent of Pennsylvanians now live in areas with no health insurance competition" the system is based on age. As people age their rates will increase. This is a large part of the increases. What was the percentage that had no health insurance competition. I bet it was higher. "For these reasons, I have voted for and continue to support the full repeal of the president's health care law." And these are the reasons I didn't vote for you.
"I have proposed reforms of my own that will lower costs and improve quality care." And these are? Most of the proposals I have seen are taking away subsidies for the poor. "My main goals include allowing individuals to buy insurance from anywhere in the United States," which we had with aetna which is now pulling out of the national market because it can't compete with local insurers like uPMc. How is this going to change? "to end the unfair tax discrimination against those buying coverage in the individual market" which helped millions afford healthcare. "and ending frivolous lawsuits that drive up medical costs for everyone." Is this really a concern at this point?
