Republican presidential candidates are once again talking about healthcare policy. At a debate earlier this month, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) discussed the need for more affordable healthcare. Vivek Ramaswamy called for a more competitive insurance marketplace.
The renewed interest in healthcare among Republicans came on the heels of former President Donald Trump’s assertion that he’d seriously look at replacing Obamacare if he were to reclaim the White House in 2024.
The U.S. healthcare system is in need of reform. And voters are rejecting the government-dominated ideas that Democrats are offering up. Republicans must be specific about how market-oriented reforms can deliver what voters are looking for.
