Convention of States!


In the health care debate, no one is asking the right questions

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Convention Of States Project

Democrats and the media are having a field day with the Congressional Budget Office’s new predictions regarding the GOP health care bill.

According to the CBO, 23 million Americans will lose health care coverage within the next ten years if Congress passes the legislation. “Insurance costs could soar for consumers who are sick or have pre-existing conditions,” the New York Times laments.

Other Democratic politicians are noting that the bill will supposedly hurt many of the people who voted for Trump in the first place, leaving them either without insurance or paying higher premiums.

Nancy Pelosi, for example, said, "If they vote on it, the minute they cast that vote they put doo-doo on their shoe. A tattoo on their forehead. And they have to explain it to their children, at some point they have to explain to their children what they did to make America sick again."

But in the midst of all the noise, no one seems to be asking the most important question: why does the federal government have enough power and influence to so drastically alter the American health insurance marketplace? Since when does Washington, D.C., have the authority to control Americans’ most personal, important decisions?

The heart of the problem is not the Republican health care plan. The problem is that the feds have any plan at all. The people and the states should be responsible for their own health care coverage -- not the corrupt, inefficient federal government.

That’s why millions of Americans have joined the Convention of States Project to limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that return the decision-making power back to We the People. These amendments can get the feds out of healthcare and restore the people and the states to their rightful place as the primary drivers of domestic policy.
