Health Care is the country’s largest economic sector, accounting for over $2 trillion in annual expenditures—four times larger than national defense! Why aren’t Republicans crafting bills that will address problems in the current health care system? I believe the American people would support bills that:

Address private insurance coverage
Address insurance portability
Address pre-existing conditions
Provide for the digitizing of medical records
The sharing of medical records between physicians (with patient consent)
Crack down on Medicare fraud
Crack down on welfare fraud

Let’s start making some common sense decisions about health care without rewriting the entire universe of health care. This list can be a starting point, but there is plenty of opportunity for bills addressing other problems in the system. We need a targeted approach to health care problem solutions.
