The reality is that we have not had a free market healthcare system for many decades. Government involvement and regulation has distorted the market for a very long time and it is unrealistic to say we are going to roll everything back in the next four years. It’s a fact—Republicans weren’t ready when we got our chance to fix the problem. Frankly, I am frustrated and embarrassed that Congress had eight years to figure out how to repeal or fix Obamacare and they didn’t have their answer ready. Skyrocketing healthcare costs and lack of access are issues we cannot ignore, and the answer will come with more portability, flexibility, and transparency. It is time Congress got past trying to score political points and on to meaningful solutions for everyday Americans.
