Cravaack Takes Partisan Line Against ACA
Eighth District Congressman Chip Cravaack has joined the chorus of Republicans critical of the Supreme Court ruling on affordable healthcare. The freshman lawmaker says ultimately, the Court’s decision will allow Obamacare to continue to limit Americans’ freedoms, gouge taxpayers, and push the country towards insolvency. He describes the bill as one of the largest tax increases in U.S. history.
Cravaack says this remains a need to enact common sense reforms that will reduce health care costs, improve choice, and increase access for all Americans. He agrees that young adults should be able to find affordable coverage, a provision that currently exists in the Affordable Care Act.
Cravaack also likes the idea of expanding Minnesotans’ ability to get lower cost health insurance by purchasing health insurance across state lines. And to lower health insurance costs through economies of scale, small businesses should be permitted to band together to purchase insurance for their employees.
