According to Rand Paul - The 15 million very sick and poor 5% whose healthcare costs consume 50% of the US Healthcare GDP would be put on Medicaid. This would avoid allowing the insurance companies from participating and would save the government over $100 billion a year and that’s what Paul Ryan’s plan would cost.
Rand would also allow individual health insurance consumers to purchase through associations like credit unions, who would negotiate with providers to get the best prices.
Rand would also make all out-of-pocket health expenses be claimed as tax deductions each year.
According to Paul Ryan - The 15 million very sick and poor 5% whose healthcare costs consume 50% of the US Healthcare GDP would be government subsidized by an advanced tax credit funded by the federal government.
Medicaid will be funded by block grants to the States and paid by the States. States will control Medicaid expenses.
Health Insurance purchased by individuals will get the same pre-tax benefit they would get by getting their health insurance through their employers.
I support Rand Paul’s proposal. Paul Ryan’s proposed advanced tax credit is too expensive and will not stop the continuing increases in healthcare or health insurance.
Congress needs to reduce immigrant and refugee expenses that are $338.7 billion a year before they load on any more entitlement plans.
