Graham on Health Care

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on health care.

“Obamacare cannot be fixed. It must be replaced.

“My goal is to provide better coverage to Americans at a lower cost.  The best way to achieve that is through flexibility and innovation.

“Our approach to health care should:

  • Reaffirm and ensure that preexisting conditions are covered so that no American can be denied health care coverage.
  • Reallocate the funds currently spent on Obamacare fairly among the states.
  • Empower the states to chart their own course in providing high-quality health care.

“If states like California, Vermont, and Massachusetts want ‘Medicare for All’ — be my guest.  South Carolina, and many others, will likely choose a much different path. 

“Taking health care dollars and directing them to new innovative approaches.  The best ideas will ultimately win out.”
