Roskam: GOP alternatives improve healthcare for all
Almost four years ago, the president’s healthcare reform plan began with worthy goals: increasing access to quality care and lowering costs for all Americans. Now that the law’s new insurance marketplaces are open, it’s clear that Obamacare not only fails to meet these goals, it creates an entirely new set of challenges. So far, millions of Americans have been kicked off of their healthcare plans and forced into more expensive federal or state exchanges. And after finding out they couldn’t in fact keep their healthcare plans as promised, millions will soon learn that the doctor they’ve seen and known for years is out of their network, despite another one of President Obama’s pledges that you could keep your doctor if you wanted to.
