GOP Senators Offer Plan to Cut Health CostsMay 30, 2018 |
by Robert Donachie
Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana released a multi-part proposal Tuesday morning that he hopes will catalyze a debate in Congress about how lawmakers can go about lowering health care costs while delivering value to patients.
“Families and patients have seen their health insurance premiums and the cost of care go up year after year. It’s unaffordable and unsustainable, and things aren’t going to get better until we change our broken system,” Cassidy said in a statement released to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “I’m focused on lowering health care costs, because we have to make health care affordable again. That’s what these ideas I’m outlining are intended to do.”
