Listen as Sally Pipes discusses the truths about the HealthCare Act from her new book, The Truth About Obamacare. Sally C. Pipes — the president of the Pacific Research Institute and an acknowledged expert on health care reform — reveals what Democrats in Congress and President Obama don’t want you to know: ObamaCare is even worse than most critics suspect. Debunking the myths that the current administration has touted, Pipes shows exactly what the new health care law will mean for you, your family, your doctor, and your wallet. She also reveals how, contrary to its promises, ObamaCare will make health care more expensive, limit your options, lead to deteriorating medical care, and weaken America’s already frail economy.
Repeal and replace” has been a conservative mantra ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. But while the process of getting rid of the law is somewhat straightforward, there’s been no consensus on what to actually replace it with.
Enter Sally Pipes, the renowned health care expert and president of the Pacific Research Institute. Pipes has a way to replace Obamacare’s expensive government health care bureaucracies with a market-driven system that she says would offer better treatment to patients while saving taxpayers money.
“I wanted to do a blueprint so politicians, staffers and people in the states could say ‘this is what I believe in,” Pipes said of her new book, “The Pipes Plan,” during an extensive interview with The Daily Caller.
“Americans demand the very best,” she said. “They don’t want to be told they have to wait four months for an MRI. They want it best, they want it now, and that’s expensive.”
One easy way to drive down health care costs, Pipes argued, is through tort reform.
“President Obama says health care is expensive because doctors want to line their pockets,” Pipes said. “Well, doctors do a lot of tests because they’re afraid of being sued, so we could reduce our costs if [all] the states did medical malpractice reform like they did in Texas.” (More on the health care law)
Pipes said that there’s still time to replace Obamacare, but only if we elect a president who has the backbone to repeal a government entitlement. That’s why she’s worried about Mitt Romney, who designed and implemented what Pipes said was a disastrous working version of Obamacare during his time as governor of Massachusetts.
