Lee’s stand against Obamacare.
Lee Opposes Obamacare.
Georgia deserves a leader who does more than just promise to fix health care. As a practicing dentist for more than 30 years, Lee is the only candidate who has been on the front line of health care, dealing with insurance, increasing regulations and prohibitive government. Lee’s health care experience uniquely qualifies him to provide long-term solutions to the problems plaguing our system—rather than the simple ”bandage” being offered right now. Lee understands how dangerous ObamaCare is to America and how national health care will be a national nightmare.
Currently, 50 cents out of every health care dollar in the U.S. is spent for a government health care program: Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and state and public health care programs. The result of so much government control is that health care is one of the most highly regulated sectors of the American economy. Government financing means government control, and government control means less personal freedom.
Lee believes in patient centered health care reform. His objective is to maximize value for individuals and families so they receive more benefit and better results. Regulations at the federal and state level must change to enable individuals and families to own and control their own health care policies and to take them from job to job without tax or regulatory penalties. He would also change the health care financing to create new opportunities for individuals and families so they control the flow of dollars into the system.
Lee supports health care reforms that comply with the following principles:
- (1) Individuals should be the key decision makers for their health insurance.
- (2) Individuals should be able to purchase and own their health insurance.
- (3) Individuals should be able to choose their own coverage, and should have access to a wide range of choices.
- (4) Price and coverage of policies should be transparent.
- (5) Individuals should have the ability periodically to change their policies.
Lee’s fight against Obamacare is nothing new. As a Georgia State Senator he sponsored legislation in 2010 to stop Obamacare in our state.
