Note to the new congress

  • Repeal Obamacare: Congress must immediately pass a law repealing Obamacare.
  • Withhold Funding, Block Provisions and Regulations: Until Obamacare is repealed, Congress should withhold funding, block key provisions, and override regulations carrying out Obamacare.
  • Proceed Carefully Towards Market-Based Reform: After Congress repeals Obamacare, it should give thoughtful consideration to practical adjustments to permit the free market to furnish Americans with affordable, effective health care insurance choices.
  • Promote Personal Control: Congress should promote personal control of health coverage and costs through the free market, where individuals have the opportunity to make market decisions based on price and value. For example, Congress should redirect health care spending under the Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to help low-income families and individuals purchase private health insurance.
  • Enable Portability: Congress also should enact a law that facilitates Federal and State activities to increase the portability of private health insurance coverage
