WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today voiced his support for the Health Care Choices Proposal, a plan created by grassroots groups to lower health care costs and increase choices for people across the United States.
Graham has been a leader in pushing for health care policies that take money and power from bureaucrats in Washington and return it to states and localities who will be able to create more innovative solutions to health care problems.
“Today’s announcement from the Health Policy Consensus Group is great news for American health care. I would especially like to thank Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky, Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi, former Senator Rick Santorum and all those who have worked tirelessly to craft this proposal.
“As long as Obamacare is the law of the land, we will continue to see premiums skyrocket and choices in health care deteriorate. Millions of Americans are suffering under Obamacare. They demand we provide them with more choices and health care that meets their needs.
“Momentum continues to grow behind the idea that the more we can move money and power for health care decisions out of Washington, the better.
“This idea – returning money and control to the states and localities – has been used before with great success when we reformed welfare. It freed states from the grips of a Washington-knows-best bureaucracy and allowed for innovation and cutting edge reforms.
“I urge my colleagues to listen to the many Americans who understand Obamacare is failing them and expect the Republican majority to do its best to replace this disaster. Using this innovative proposal, we can continue to push for legislation that will lower costs and increase choices. Ultimately, I believe we will have a breakthrough and deliver for the American people.”
