“Time to discard the burdens and costs of Obamacare”

– Secretary Rick Perry, in the Cleveland Plain Dealer

President Donald Trump greets families that oppose Obamacare Monday in the Blue Room of the White House. In the op-ed below, Energy Secretary Rick Perry urges Congress to craft a health care bill that returns policymaking power to the states.

Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry writes in the Cleveland Plain Dealer that since Obamacare’s passage, “America has been staggering under its burdens and failures.” He notes how insurance companies have abandoned its exchanges, premium costs have skyrocketed, and patients have lost both choices to doctors and insurance plans. Secretary Perry recounts his experience as governor of Texas, noting his home state “has done a number of innovative things to improve health care in ways we knew made sense for Texas,” innovations that “Washington would not have known.” He urges Congress to act, writing “there is an historic opportunity for Congress to finally empower people and states and move control out of Washington. There will not be another opportunity like this for a very long time.”

The New York Post reports on President Trump’s statement Monday urging Senators “in no uncertain terms” to fulfill their promises to pass an Obamacare repeal bill.

CBO scores of ObamaCare rollback have been nothing but fantasy

While in The Hill, George Washington University economist Diana Furchtgott-Roth writes that the “CBO should recognize that its estimates of the costs of healthcare reform bills are simply wrong,” saying, “what ordinary Americans know, and what is clearly not reflected in the CBO scores, is that the ObamaCare exchanges are not working and the system is about to collapse.”
