Obamacare is collapsing. Health insurance costs are rising, and quality of care is decreasing, while federal regulations also harm employment. The consequences were predictable. But Obamacare supporters are now demanding an even larger federal role in Americans' private medical decisions. "Single-payer," another term for European socialized medicine, would be a disaster, leading to higher taxes, centralized decision-making in Washington, and rationing. Instead, we must return power to patients and their doctors. Removing expensive layers of bureaucracy would lower prices for insurance, services, and accelerate innovation. Numerous times, I have voted to repeal Obamacare and replace it with free-market reforms that respect every American's right to make his or her own health care decisions.
