I have also introduced the Coercion is Not Health Care Act, HR 2629. This legislation forbids the federal government from forcing any American to purchase health insurance, or conditioning participation in any federal program on the purchase of health insurance. Forcing Americans to purchase government-approved health insurance is a back door approach to creating a government-controlled healthcare system. Congress would define what policies and coverage requirements satisfy their mandate. Does anyone then doubt that what conditions and treatments are covered would be determined by who has the most effective lobby? Or that Congress would be capable of writing a mandatory insurance policy that fits the unique needs of every individual in the United States?
Thank you for the heads up Dailey. He sure does have some great points here. I personally want the government doing as little as possible except relaxing regulations that prevent health startups from gaining ground.
There’s very little the government does well. And I don’t have much faith that the government will disrupt 1/5th of our economy (healthcare) and create a more streamlined, more technologically advanced, and higher quality system.
