The Issue:

Healthcare

Congress eliminated the individual mandate in tax reform, but Obamacare remains the law of the land. As a result, Congressional Republicans and the Trump administration are increasingly owning the blame for rising premiums. The urgency for meaningful action will only increase as networks continue to narrow, premiums continue to rise, and choices continue to decline. The extent of Obamacare’s failure will become increasingly obvious as we get closer to the midterm elections in November. It is time to get the federal government out of the business of dictating your health insurance by block granting authority back to the states and empowering individuals and patients to have real and meaningful choice by giving states flexibility and resources to meet this goal.

Our Position

Heritage Action is holding Congress and the administration accountable to advancing conservative efforts to topple Obamacare. Republicans have yet another opportunity to follow through on their repeated campaign promises and provide Americans with lower cost and greater access to healthcare.
