I wish to express my opposition HR 3200, and any other bill that may create a "Public Health Option" or similar construct that would broaden government's involvement in the health care industry.
I strongly support, and urge the legislative prioritization of, tort reform and tax parity between employee-provided and individually obtained health insurance.
Meaningful tort reform should include a cap on non-economic damages, a limitation on attorney's fees, allowing consideration of "collateral sources" in measuring damages, and a mandate of periodic payment of damages.
Tax parity between employee-provided and individually obtained health insurance should be designed to make health insurance more affordable to individuals.
