As a small business owner and consumer of health care, I see the cost of providing and accessing quality health care skyrocketing. Patients are the ones bearing the brunt of these costs in the form of higher premiums, co-pays, and prescription drug prices.
The average family now faces $8,000 in out of pocket expenses above and beyond their premiums. The health care problems facing our nation today are the result of decades of ineffective public policy, a failure to pass meaningful tort reform and bad business practices. Obamacare has not delivered on its basic promises and should be replaced.
