Jeb Bush, like other Republican presidential candidates, is vowing to repeal Obamacare, while making healthcare more innovative and affordable.
Bush’s health care plan, outlined Monday in a two-page document, is light on details of how he’d change a system that accounts for about 18 percent of the U.S. economy. The former Florida governor said he wants to increase innovation, reduce the cost of care and give individual states more control over how they take care of their citizens.
“ObamaCare is a government takeover of more than one-sixth of the American economy, and it epitomizes why Americans are so fed up with Washington,” Bush’s document states. “To win on repeal, conservatives must unite around a vision of health care for the future—one that enables transformational innovation.”
