ON-Lion Letter
John C. Goodman, president and chief executive officer of the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) in Dallas, testified in March before the U.S. House of RepresentativesEnergy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Health -- providing solutions that would put health care on a more-sustainable spending path.

"There are major structural flaws in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," according to Goodman's testimony.  "Each is so potentially damaging, Congress will have to resort to major corrective action even if critics of the new health care law are not part of it.  Further, each must be addressed in any new attempt to create workable health care reform.

"Ideally, one hopes the two parties will work together to reform health care in a way that's good for doctors and patients," he concludes.  "Congress should begin by voting to repeal the worst features of health care reform.  That means no individual mandates, no individual or employer fines, and no regulations of the type that might cause an employer, such as McDonald's, to drop coverage for 30,000 low-wage employees and the 3M Corporation to drop coverage for all its retirees."
