WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GovWaste–Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) released a new Issue Brief, “Government-Run Healthcare Will Harm Patients and Eliminate Consumer Choice,” co-authored by CAGW President Tom Schatz and CAGW Director of Health and Science Policy Elizabeth Wright which details why a free market approach to healthcare reform is necessary to ensure individuals have the best care available at a cost they can afford.
Tom Schatz and Elizabeth Wright issued the following statement:
“Healthcare reform has been a topic of vigorous debate for what seems like an eternity. CAGW has been at the forefront of this debate since the group’s inception in 1984. As members of Congress continue to debate ‘Medicare for all,’ or ‘free healthcare,’ they never discuss the long wait lists to see specialists, limited access to innovative medicines or medical technology and delays in getting surgery in countries that utilize socialize medicine. The best solution for healthcare reform is a free market system that ensures individuals make their own choices and receive the best care available at a cost they can afford.”
CAGW is the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
