Neel Kashkari on Health Care
Fix ObamaCare's fundamental flaws, or replace it completely
The Californians I've met with often mention two fundamental flaws with President Barack Obama's healthcare law:
I've talked to small
business owners who were concerned they couldn't afford the Affordable Care Act. Some told me they would be forced to cut hours or reduce their full-time staff.
- the negative effect of the Affordable Care Act on jobs and
- skyrocketing premiums for healthy people.
We need to fix the fundamental flaws with ObamaCare, or if it's beyond fixing, replace it completely with something better. Going back to a system where the uninsured turn to emergency rooms for their health care doesn't make sense for anyone.
Developing a health care system that actually works starts by having an honest conversation with the American people about the trade-offs involved. President Obama has been in office five years and hasn't been willing to have one yet.
