January, 2015 - Our America Initiative opposes expansion of the bankrupting Medicaid entitlement as part of ObamaCare, and supports an effort to roll back a regulation called "Certificate of Need" that limits choices for patients. Despite incredible improvements in medical therapies and technology, the health market taking a seventh of the economy faces enormous distortions from uncontrolled government subsidies such as Medicaid and smothering rules such as limits on how medical entrepreneurs can build new facilities to offer more choices to consumers. While states should have the power to assist those in need, they shouldn't be forced by the national government to bankrupt themselves in the process. Indeed, North Carolina's governor has proposed reforms to give more choices to Medicaid recipients we support; the legislature further should support medical deregulation and adoption of a high-risk pool to make insurance broadly more affordable. Thus, we urge our supporters to email their state representative and senator to "oppose bankrupting Medicaid expansion without reforms", and click here to repeal CON limits that hamper patients' facility choices. With input from our Advisory Council on Health Reform and your donation now, we could expand health freedom efforts through more of our fifty state affiliates.
