Buddy Roemer on Health Care

Former Governor (R-LA); frontrunner for AmericansElect presidential nomination


Address frivolous lawsuits; make insurance companies compete

It is time to be brutally honest. If we pass a health care bill that does not address frivolous medical lawsuits, fails to make insurance companies compete or provide real choice to our citizens, has someone bought too much access? We have traded access in the political system for guaranteed special interest outcomes. This must stop. Our political system, our decision-makers are indebted to all the wrong things--money--all of it corrupt and all of it making real change just a nice tag line in a speech.
