"What we re doing ░░░░░░░░ today is we re ░░░░░░░░ that American can have ░░░░░░░░ system of universal health ░░░░░░░░ access without the government ░░░░░░░░ it The Patient Choice ░░░░░░░░ shows how to give ░░░░░░░░ Americans access to affordable ░░░░░░░░ where the patients and ░░░░░░░░ doctors are in charge ░░░░░░░░ the government The current ░░░░░░░░ treatment of health care ░░░░░░░░ is a relic of ░░░░░░░░ War II discriminates against ░░░░░░░░ self employed against the ░░░░░░░░ and against those people ░░░░░░░░ do not get health ░░░░░░░░ at their jobs This ░░░░░░░░ have worked in America ░░░░░░░░ everybody had the same ░░░░░░░░ throughout their lives and ░░░░░░░░ their careers That s ░░░░░░░░ the America we have ░░░░░░░░ A lot of people ░░░░░░░░ their jobs So the ░░░░░░░░ benefit should change and ░░░░░░░░ with them and not ░░░░░░░░ attached to their jobs ░░░░░░░░ want to address job ░░░░░░░░ So they key question ░░░░░░░░ ought to be addressed ░░░░░░░░ any health care reform ░░░░░░░░ is are we going ░░░░░░░░ continue job lock or ░░░░░░░░ we going to allow ░░░░░░░░ more choice and portability ░░░░░░░░ fit the 21st century ░░░░░░░░ We propose to equalize ░░░░░░░░ tax treatment of health ░░░░░░░░ giving every American regardless ░░░░░░░░ employment status the ability ░░░░░░░░ purchase health insurance and ░░░░░░░░ you ve like what ░░░░░░░░ ve got you can ░░░░░░░░ it If you like ░░░░░░░░ you have at your ░░░░░░░░ you can keep it ░░░░░░░░ apply your tax benefit ░░░░░░░░ that This will result ░░░░░░░░ a vast majority of ░░░░░░░░ in a net tax ░░░░░░░░ We propose to replace ░░░░░░░░ discriminatory tax exclusion with ░░░░░░░░ refundable tax credit of ░░░░░░░░ 300 per individual and ░░░░░░░░ 700 per family It ░░░░░░░░ a concept that was ░░░░░░░░ championed by top economic ░░░░░░░░ in the Obama administration ░░░░░░░░ Patient s Choice Act ░░░░░░░░ our broken health care ░░░░░░░░ With perverse incentives and ░░░░░░░░ costs into a vibrant ░░░░░░░░ care market where individuals ░░░░░░░░ families reclaim ownership of ░░░░░░░░ coverage and ownership of ░░░░░░░░ health care decisions As ░░░░░░░░ mentioned if you like ░░░░░░░░ you ve got you ░░░░░░░░ keep it and you ░░░░░░░░ probably end up with ░░░░░░░░ money in your pocket ░░░░░░░░ the end of the ░░░░░░░░ For non taxpayers for ░░░░░░░░ whom the credit is ░░░░░░░░ and refundable we provide ░░░░░░░░ credit in the same ░░░░░░░░ but the funding for ░░░░░░░░ credit is generated by ░░░░░░░░ and entitlement programs On ░░░░░░░░ of that Medicaid and ░░░░░░░░ populations will get additional ░░░░░░░░ to cover out of ░░░░░░░░ costs This removes the ░░░░░░░░ associated with second class ░░░░░░░░ care that the Medicaid ░░░░░░░░ is experiencing today Right ░░░░░░░░ those folks on Medicaid ░░░░░░░░ going into the doctor ░░░░░░░░ office and being denied ░░░░░░░░ are going through health ░░░░░░░░ with a second class ░░░░░░░░ We want to give ░░░░░░░░ the dignity of private ░░░░░░░░ insurance that everybody else ░░░░░░░░ America is enjoying and ░░░░░░░░ everybody should enjoy in ░░░░░░░░ Medicaid families would get ░░░░░░░░ same 5 700 tax ░░░░░░░░ available to the rest ░░░░░░░░ the population in addition ░░░░░░░░ a supplemental card with ░░░░░░░░ to 5 000 so ░░░░░░░░ to 10 700 for ░░░░░░░░ income families to pay ░░░░░░░░ health care coverage The ░░░░░░░░ debate with taxes in ░░░░░░░░ care represents a clear ░░░░░░░░ between the two approaches ░░░░░░░░ in Washington The president ░░░░░░░░ the Democrats discuss tax ░░░░░░░░ as a means to ░░░░░░░░ greater revenues into Washington ░░░░░░░░ the idea that the ░░░░░░░░ government knows best Their ░░░░░░░░ centric approach will require ░░░░░░░░ tax increases seeking to ░░░░░░░░ ever higher spending with ░░░░░░░░ higher taxes We believe ░░░░░░░░ a patient centered model ░░░░░░░░ we remain firmly committed ░░░░░░░░ directing the resources and ░░░░░░░░ decision making power with ░░░░░░░░ You see we already ░░░░░░░░ twice as much per ░░░░░░░░ on health care in ░░░░░░░░ than all of the ░░░░░░░░ industrialized countries The answer ░░░░░░░░ not a massive new ░░░░░░░░ increase and massive new ░░░░░░░░ programs The answer is ░░░░░░░░ take the money we ░░░░░░░░ already spending and spend ░░░░░░░░ far more efficiently far ░░░░░░░░ effectively to reflect the ░░░░░░░░ of the 21st century ░░░░░░░░ that the center of ░░░░░░░░ system is not politicians ░░░░░░░░ bureaucrats making the decisions ░░░░░░░░ center of this system ░░░░░░░░ patients and their doctors ░░░░░░░░ the decisions."
