Congressman MacArthur — My dad took years to pay off medical bills
We were joined by my friend and NJ Congressman Tom MacArthur this morning.
He shed some light on the bottom line that competition and free market principles need to be incorporated into the conversation about health care going forward. As Tom pointed out,
Obamacare had the unintended consequence of actually pricing out tens of millions from health insurance access due to the cost of insuring the uninsured and pre-existing conditions. His plan to to share the risk and spread the cost of helping those in need away from all policy holders.
Take a listen and let us know what you think. Congressman MacArthur shared a very intimate detail about his young life. losing his mother to cancer when he was only four -years-old. The story of how those medical costs impacted his family may surprise you.
