We believe the American health care system is desperately
in need of reform. The Affordable Care Act has
failed to achieve its goal of affordable, universal coverage.
Instead it has forced people, especially those in
middle-income households, to choose from insurance
plans with deductibles that are unreasonably high and
provider networks that are too narrow to adequately
help many afflicted with serious health problems.
The following proposals would vastly improve coverage
by making health insurance affordable for all and
by ensuring access to reliable medical care. They are
incorporated in bicameral legislation introduced in the
House and the Senate by Rep. Pete Sessions and Sen.
Bill Cassidy and in the Patient Freedom Act, sponsored
by Sen. Cassidy.
Pete Sessions represents Texas's 32nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is Chairman of the House Rules Committee and former Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Based on the Independent Institute book by Senior Fellow John C. Goodman, A Better Choice: Healthcare Solutions for America, Congressman Sessions proposed the bicameral bill, The World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017, to the House of Representatives.
Bill Cassidy, M.D. is the senior U. S. Senator from the state of Louisiana and serves on the Health Education Labor & Pensions (HELP), Energy and Natural Resources, Finance, Veterans Affairs and Joint Economic Committees.
