ObamaCare will increase costs; repeal it

Malpractice reform is the right approach

Malpractice reform must be an essential part of health care reform. This alone would reduce the federal deficit by at least $54 billion over the next ten years. Malpractice reform is critical to reducing defensive medicine costs--redundant tests and procedures that medical professionals administer not out of medical necessity, but rather because they want to be protected in the event they are sued and forced to answer questions from a plaintiff's attorney. Some studies estimate that comprehensive medical malpractice reform could achieve $242 billion annually in cost reductions--an amount equal to 10% of total annual health care costs. According to Pacific Research Institute, comprehensive malpractice reform, each year, would save $191 billion by curbing defensive medicine, nearly $42 billion from increased output and another $9 billion from lowering direct tort costs associated with abusive lawsuits.

Obamacare is the wrong approach

The new health care law is the wrong approach. It fails to reduce costs, and real reform must address the problem of rising costs. Washington's health care overhaul was crafted in a flawed process: negotiated in secret, without bi-partisan buy-in and without real debate. Not surprisingly, that flawed process produced a bad result: health care "reform" that fails to reduce costs, raises taxes on small businesses, reduces the quality of care, and puts government bureaucrats between doctors and patients
