Pay-or-Play: Blackburn Slams Employer Health Mandate
Heritage Foundation - Heritage Foundation
There is little disagreement the current healthcare system needs an overhaul. The U.S. spends over $2.4 trillion dollars annually on healthcare and costs have doubled since 2000 for employer-based family coverage. Options are shrinking.Most agree reform is needed but the debate lies with two competing ideals for the future of healthcare. One is where Washington controls financing and delivery and is seen as the solution, not the problem; while the other contends individuals and families are the best judge of how to spend health care dollars.In the middle lie employers and Congress. The Heritage Foundation hosts an event addressing the future of reform and how it will impact employee provided healthcare.
