Michael Steele on Health Care
A: I believe we need to create a health care system that works for small business owners and small business employees. Millions of them are going without health care today just because bureaucrats in Washington won't wake up to the fact that our current system is burdensome and ineffective. That is why I support allowing small businesses to band together and compete for better insurance options. With Association Health Plans, small employers will be able to pool their health insurance costs and have greater purchasing power to achieve better benefits for their employees.
A: Who pays for universal health insurance? Who pays for socialized medicine? I don't need government dictating to me when I go to the doctor, which doctor I go to, how much is going to be paid for my health care. That's not the America I want to live in. I think we have some better alternatives than going to a European-style or a Canadian-style health care system.
