Leah Campos Schandlbauer, CD09 Candidate, on Today’s Healthcare Ruling

PHOENIX — Leah Campos Schandlbauer, Republican candidate for Arizona’s 9th Congressional District today released the following statement about the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
“Five decades of inside-the-beltway healthcare planning have been unable to stop the runaway costs that continue to plague families and bankrupt the federal government.  Today’s Supreme Court ruling further bureacratizes our healthcare system while foisting a huge tax increase on the American people, despite President Obama’s promises to the contrary.

“Politicians who favor government control of healthcare say current problems reflect a failure of the market, but we haven’t had a truly free market for insurance and care in more than half a century. It’s impossible to effectively serve the diverse healthcare needs of more than 300 million Americans with a Washington-centric plan. I am glad that the Supreme Court placed a limit on the federal government’s meddling in healthcare via the commerce clause, but sad to see Obamacare stand under a dubious tax rationale.  It will now be up to Congress to repeal the law. The only way to truly decrease healthcare costs is by the efficiency and discipline imposed by a truly free market. I will work toward re-establish the healthcare market with the following steps:

1. Repeal Obamacare
2. Equalize the tax treatment of insurance plans purchased by individuals and businesses
3. Allow for the purchase of insurance plans across state lines
4. Limit Medicare’s dominance of the healthcare sector by giving individuals under the age of 55 the option to use their Medicare funds to purchase insurance from commercial providers
“The first step to re-establishing a genuine marketplace for health services is to stop federal meddling in healthcare.”

  1. Please propose some viable solutions, instead of empty rethoric. Obamacare has eliminated per existing conditions, and lifetime caps on benefits. You R’shave had fifty years to do the same, and haven’t. Why should I believe you now?

      Bill,

      I believe that she did propose solutions. Did you read her statement. I know some people don’t quite grasp market economics, but her solutions would do a great deal to lower costs. Obamacare will increase costs. Besides repealing that, she suggests

      2. Equalize the tax treatment of insurance plans purchased by individuals and businesses

      3. Allow for the purchase of insurance plans across state lines

      4. Limit Medicare’s dominance of the healthcare sector by giving individuals under the age of 55 the option to use their Medicare funds to purchase insurance from commercial providers

      Seems good to me.
