Conservatives must ground health care reforms in fairness, compassion, and equality
Over the past five years, conservatives have advanced significant health policy reforms. Federal and state price transparency requirements are saving patients money and helping to protect against surprise bills, and legislation in Texas has increased patient and employer options for health benefit coverage.
The House Republican Commitment to America builds on these successes with a strong set of health care principles that would lead to better health outcomes and more affordable care and coverage. Similarly, the America First Agenda seeks to put patients and doctors back in charge of our health care system which is supported by 86 percent of surveyed Americans.
Still, polls routinely show the American people trust Democrats over Republicans by double-digit margins on health care.
Our two organizations, America First Policy Institute and Gingrich 360 (through its America’s New Majority Project) spent the summer talking to voters to determine why.
