Obamacare has sent our health insurance system into a death spiral. Premiums continue to soar as insurance companies are pulling out of the market, leaving consumers with fewer and fewer affordable choices. In over a third of the nation’s counties, individuals have just one insurance plan as a choice. Soon, many counties will have no plans available. Repealing and replacing Obamacare is no longer an option. It’s essential.
Answering the alarm, on March 6 Republican leaders in the House of Representatives unveiled the American Health Care Act, their attempt at “repeal and replace.” Unfortunately, writes Dr. Jeffrey Singer, advocates of health care freedom have little reason to be pleased. The American Health Care Act does little to stop the death spiral underway. It may even accelerate it.
