Healthcare Freedom

Healthcare decisions are intensely personal, and everyone deserves the right to make their own healthcare decisions and from what type of healthcare coverage they purchase to what medications they take. Health reform that works must be focused on expanding choices including allowing individuals to purchase insurance across state lines, to opt for an alternative to traditional health insurance, and to allow individual patients to access promising medications.

The problems in healthcare are not a result of too little government, but too much government. Rather than mandating one-size fits all coverage, the focus should be on increasing the choices available to individuals.

Missouri became the third state to give patients the right to save their own lives Monday evening, as Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) signed legislation that will enable terminally ill patients to access safe experimental medications that could save their lives. Colorado and Louisiana approved similar measures known as "Right to Try" reforms earlier this summer, and Arizona voters will consider the measure on the November ballot.

On Wednesday, Michigan lawmakers will consider the Right to Try Act in a senate health committee.
