Conservatives believe that health care is best managed in the private sector, allowing Americans to select private health savings accounts that meet their needs.
They believe that senior citizens that are already dependent upon Medicare should be allowed to choose whether to remain in that plan or to select a private plan and that those under 50 should build up their own private health savings accounts or get a catastrophic plan that will cover that unexpected event.
In 2010, American Leadership Fund conducted a survey of active Republicans that showed 98% of those who responded believe that health care is not a constitutional right. By the same margin, they objected to the federal government managing and controlling their health care decisions.
Conservatives everywhere must work together to oppose the individual mandate and to protect their health and religious liberty, as well as to prevent the United States from lunging over the “fiscal cliff.”
As of this posting, 23 states are opposing President Obama’s demands to set up a state health insurance exchange and 20 have consented. Utah is one of two states out of 13 that have set up a “voluntary” exchange that the Obama Administration has initially explained does not meet the “all or nothing” standard of Secretary Sebelius’ exchange requirements.
Utah’s Governor Gary Herbert supports Utah’s exchange. American Leadership Fund opposes it, as well as any state giving in to the reckless fiscal demands of the federal government and stands with the 23 states that are refusing to accept the mandatory requirement to expand Medicaid.
