Rep. Dave Camp came to Heritage’s weekly bloggers briefing today [1]. He made specific recommendations for health care reform that leaves the individual in charge and actually reduces┬ácosts without raising taxes [2].

“80% of Americans have health care, and they don’t want to see it change in a fundamental way,” he said, adding that reform should include 3 things “that get the cost out of health care.”

  1. Common-sense liability┬áreform that reduces doctors’ need to practice defensive medicine.
  2. Regulatory reform, so small businesses [3] can group together in insurance pools.
  3. Strong anti-fraud provisions.
