A successful reform should also ensure that the costs of health care don’t threaten your family’s finances, that your doctor is paid for making you well and not ordering unnecessary tests, and that your health-care premiums are spent on actual care, not paying for piles of paperwork and red tape.
I believe these objectives can and must be met, and I am pushing for the inclusion of additional reforms to bring down the costs of health care in the reform package. After all, affordable, quality health insurance is the key to a productive work force, small business innovation, and the economic as well as health security of our families and nation.
