by Andrew Mangione – AMAC is pleased to announce our support for H.R. 3121, the “American Health Care Reform Act.” This significant piece of legislation, introduced by Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) and endorsed by the Republican Study Committee, presents a free-market approach to health care reform. Beginning with a full repeal of ObamaCare, H.R. 3121 is comprised of six basic components that work together to lower the overall costs of health care and to ensure quality access to care is expanded to millions of Americans. This bill includes a number of concepts that AMAC members voted to support through our website polls, including interstate insurance competition, medical malpractice reform, and tax reform that standardizes a deduction for health insurance for all Americans. Additionally, AMAC has publicly supported other aspects of the “American Health Care Reform Act” through legislation that repeals ObamaCare and restricts the federal funding of abortions. Overall, AMAC commends Dr. Roe for his leadership as a medical professional on this issue. AMAC is glad to support this responsible bill, which promises to place patients and doctors at the center of important health care decisions – not government.
