    • HEALTHCARE - PRESERVING OUR HERITAGE: LOW TAXESThe central issue in the Americanhealth care debate is whetherspending should be controlled :• By moving toward a freemarket, relying on competitionto secure value for money andeconomic efficiencies.VS• By the imposition of variousrestrictions on the supply ofmedical goods and servicesthrough a centralized gov‟tand its machinery.
    • HEALTHCARE - PRESERVING OUR HERITAGE: LIMITED GOV’TAs James Capretta, a formerOMB Associate Director,explains:“Efforts to control costs fromthe top down have alwaysdevolved into price settingand across-the-boardpayment-rate reductions,which is detrimental to thequality of Americanmedicine.Price controls drive outwilling suppliers of services,after which the only way tobalance supply and demandis with waiting lists”.

    • HEALTHCARE - CONCLUSIONSCRITICS OF REP. PAUL RYAN‟S FISCAL ROADMAP HAVE FAILED TOOFFER A COMPARABLE ALTERNATIVE. THE FACTS ARE THESE:A. PR-PTP IS THE ONLY PLAN TO REFORM AMERICA‟SENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS, TRANSFORM THE FINANCING ANDDELIVERY OF AMERICANS‟ HEALTH CARE, REDUCE THE DEFICIT,ESTABLISH EQUITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE TAX TREATMENT OFHEALTH INSURANCE, IMPROVE THE PROVISION OF HEALTH CAREFOR MIDDLE-CLASS AND LOW-INCOME FAMILIES - - AND PRESERVEAMERICA‟S HERITAGE OF COST CONTROL BY CONSUMER CHOICE.B. PR-PTP IS THE ONLY COMPREHENSIVE, INTEGRATED, PRO-GROWTH SOLUTION IN THE NATIONAL ARENA TO RESTORE FISCALRESPONSIBILITY AT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT , CREATE JOBS ,AND IMPROVE THE FINANCIAL FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN ANDGRANDCHILDREN.BUT POLITICAL RISK (per Dick Morris) IS ALSO A FACTOR.
