Hearing on “Universal Healthcare” Shows Too Many Members of Congress Want Government-Run Healthcare
Washington, D.C. (December 10, 2019)— Today, the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee held a hearing entitled, “Proposals to Achieve Universal Healthcare Coverage.”
“Whether you call it ‘universal healthcare,’ ‘Medicare for All,’ or ‘the public option,’ the fact is, too many Members of Congress are pushing a government takeover of America’s healthcare system – either immediately or gradually. Under ‘Medicare for All,’ almost 200 million Americans would lose their private health insurance with a stroke of a pen. The ‘public option” is no better; it’s a step on the way to ‘Medicare for All” – a ‘Trojan Horse.’ No private company can compete against the government, which means that private insurance will eventually collapse. Americans do not want government-run healthcare, and yet they are fed up with the status quo. As an alternative, JCNF has created ‘Healthcare for You,’ a seven-part framework for healthcare reform that has been endorsed by Newt Gingrich and seven governors and was produced with the input of 25,000 Americans – the largest healthcare market research ever conducted.”
