JACK DAVIS ENDORSES HEALTHCARE COMPACT TO REPLACE OBAMACARE, GIVE STATES FLEXIBILITY AND CONTROL COSTS
Jack Davis, independent candidate for Congress, set out a plan to replace Obamacare and give states power to address out-of-control health care costs. States would have greater flexibility to devise model health care programs and spend money allocated under federal programs by joining an interstate compact.
“For those like myself that want to replace Obamacare, the interstate Healthcare Compact is a realistic and viable strategy. States, not Congress, the White House, or federal bureaucrats, should set the rules for healthcare from top to bottom. In addition, individuals should be able to deduct the cost of health insurance from their federal income taxes just as corporations can,” Davis said.
“Healthcare is simply too large and complex to manage at the federal level. Our federal healthcare system impacts 300+ million people and healthcare spending exceeds 2.3 trillion dollars annually. Centralized planning of an industry that is this large and complex is not possible and has never been successful,” said Jack Davis.
The Healthcare Compact would make it possible for Americans to exercise greater control over their healthcare options. It would relieve the federal government of the responsibility for healthcare policy and return it to the states. As decision-making is transferred from the federal government to the states, so would control over federal healthcare dollars.
The Healthcare Compact does not impose one model of healthcare reform on an immense and diverse country. It does not presume that there is one Band-Aid solution to solve the healthcare crisis. Exactly how a specific compact would work – how it would function – would be determined by the states that enter into it.
New York state taxpayers send more dollars to Washington than they receive in return from the federal government. Overall, government checks flow from affluent states, generally in the Northeast and West, to less affluent states, especially in the South.
Jack Davis is running for Congress in the 26th Congressional District. The special election is scheduled for May 24th.
