Broun Introduces Healthcare Overhaul: OPTION Act
FreedomWorks endorses, calls Broun’s OPTION Act best alternative to Obamacare
U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today introduced legislation that will repeal President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and overhaul the United States health care system. Broun’s OPTION (Offering Patients True Individualized Options Now) Act, H.R. 4224, is endorsed and highly touted by the conservative group, FreedomWorks.
Congressman Broun said, “The OPTION Act is what true patient-centered health care reform looks like. It’s clear, it’s concise, and there are no tricks or budgetary gimmicks hidden in this bill – what you see is what you get. It completely removes government from the doctor-patient relationship, and it is the only health care bill that allows the patient to have full control of their coverage – even once they’re on Medicare. I urge my colleagues to pass this bill as soon as possible. Americans want a do-over on Obamacare, and the OPTION Act gives them the access to the affordable care they need.”
While Obamacare was a complex 2,700 page bill, Broun’s OPTION Act puts forward several important reforms in just 50 pages:
“Congressman Broun has authored a bold, timely, and principled plan that offers exactly what a majority of Americans want: patient-centered reforms, in place of the Democrats’ unconstitutional government takeover. FreedomWorks is excited to support this legislation because it is based on the tea party principles of individual liberty and constitutionally limited government. We’ll be mobilizing our 1.5 million grassroots members to help pass the OPTION Act.” – Matt Kibbe, President & CEO of FreedomWorks
