Obamacare is Hurting Arizona
New Bill Will Put Patients Back in Charge of Health Care Decisions
In the five years since the president jammed Obamacare through Congress without a single Republican vote, the American people have been met with higher health care costs, decreased quality of care, and fewer choices.
That’s why the Empowering Patients First Act was introduced today. This new bill would fully repeal and replace Obamacare with affordable and accessible solutions that put patients back in charge of their health care decisions.
You’ll remember, just a few months ago, tens of thousands of people in Arizona were left scrambling to find new health care coverage with the closing of Arizona’s Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (co-op), Meritus Mutual Health Partners. The failure of this low-cost insurance plan represents yet another broken promise about the president’s health-care experiment and its failure across the country.
Families in Arizona and across the country should have the power to make their own medical decisions — not Washington bureaucrats.
The system wasn’t perfect before. But Obamacare has only served to make things far, far worse. It’s clear that any serious attempt to improve our health-care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
