David Walker on Health Care

 


Cap annual healthcare spending like every major country

Q: On healthcare reform, your opinion?A: Choice B, based upon the definition of "major." Cap annual federal healthcare spending like every other major industrialized country. The government already has a major role and would have an even bigger role under ACA.

Q: You mean the Affordable Care Act, known as ObamaCare, would enlarge government's role, and you recommend against that?

A: Government needs to have a smaller role than under ACA--but it would still have a major role. I'm for repealing and replacing the ACA. I'm for universal healthcare, but it should be appropriate, affordable, and sustainable.

Demographics will require more federal healthcare funding

Q: What is your opinion on the statement, "More federal funding for health coverage"?

A: Support. We need fundamental healthcare reform irrespective of the Supreme Court's decision on ACA.

Q: You're referring to the Supreme Court's ruling on the ObamaCare Affordable Care Act argued last week, with a ruling due in June? And you mean you would support a new federal health initiative if ObamaCare's individual mandate is struck down in that ruling?

Repeal and replace ObamaCare if Supreme Court doesn't

Q: What should be done if the Supreme Court case upholds ObamaCare's individual mandate?

A: We need to repeal and replace ACA if the Supreme Court does not strike it down. The federal government should focus on comprehensive reform that addresses coverage, cost and quality. Guaranteed coverage should focus on preventative, wellness and catastrophic for the broad population with the government doing more for certain groups like veterans, the poor, etc.

Annual budget limit on all federal health care spending

Q: You said, "We need to impose annual limits in what the federal government spends" -- could you elaborate on how we would "join every civilized nation in the world on healthcare spending" by doing so? A: I believe in applying an annual budget limit on all federal health care spending like other major industrialized nations.
