Health care spending in the U.S. remains over 15% of our economy, one of the highest percentages in the developed world.  Many other countries deliver lower costs and superior outcomes.  While we have made some progress in recent years, we still face important policy imperatives to expand coverage, drive down the costs of prescription drugs and care, and get better results.

I believe that any proposal for health care must answer three fundamental questions:

  • How will it impact people?

  • How much will it cost?

  • What will be the process for implementation?

Efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act were never about health care.  They’ve always been about politics, an explicit statement that the concerns of 32 million Americans (40,000 of whom are Northern Virginians) do not matter.  With more people in the gig economy, we need a strong health care system to support the workforce of the future.
