Lawmakers must support a legislative strategy to accomplish a singular goal – to reduce the cost of health care for working people through a new, consumer-friendly marketplace. Congressional and legislative candidates will be judged by their answer to this question: “How do you propose to make health care affordable for employees and employers?”
Working people are nearing the tipping point. Either lawmakers will support a consumer-friendly market-driven system to reduce cost, or they will go the final mile toward “health care for all” in whatever government-run, single payer form they can sell to voters.
In previous elections, everyone talked about “pre-existing conditions.” In this election, the “pre-existing condition” is unaffordable health care - with average annual premiums for family health insurance already at $20,576.
The most talked about reform, Medicare for All, does away with protections for pre-existing conditions with its global budgets and government-imposed limitations on the distribution of medical care.
Health Care 2020 understands the political Golden Rule – He who writes the rules attracts the gold, and there’s gold in the hills of Big Health Care stakeholders. The wise political candidate, however, will be the one who understands that working people are paying for all that gold. They will demonstrate their understanding by taking the side of working people instead of those with Deep Pockets.
