  • The Conservative Alternative to Obamacare

    Dear friends,

    We’ve been very critical of Obamacare because it’s hurting Americans. But that has caused some to ask, “What’s your alternative?”

    The truth is, we’ve always had alternatives, but our critics weren’t ready to listen. Now, the disastrous rollout of Obamacare has a lot of people asking for alternatives to government-run health care. And conservatives are ready.

    With each passing day, it becomes clearer that Obamacare will not reduce premiums for average American families, bring down health care spending, or truly improve health care in this country. Instead, people are receiving notices from their insurance companies that their policies are being canceled or their premiums are skyrocketing.

    At The Heritage Foundation, we are envisioning a health care system where you and your family come first.

    What if you could choose and control your own health insurance? What if you could buy the insurance and health care services you want and need? What if your health insurance didn’t go away when you changed jobs?

    The good news is, all of these things are possible. There can be life after Obamacare—and it doesn’t mean going back to the status quo that we had before. We can move ahead, taking the best health care system in the world and making it even better.

    Our experts in the Center for Health Policy Studies have put together a new paper that explains how these conservative ideas work. It includes:

    • How we will help people with pre-existing conditions
    • How we will help you keep your health insurance when you change jobs
    • How we can lower costs and improve health care quality—no matter what your income is
    • How we can honor people’s faith and protect the right of conscience in health care

    We are excited to share this set of commonsense solutions with you—not just because they are good public policy solutions, but because they bring hope. We have hope for life after Obamacare, and these policies would give you back control over your own health care.

    Now that’s worth working toward. I hope you’ll join us.
