Lanhee Chen: We Need Patient-Centered Health Care Reform

President Trump needs to tell the American people how he plans to fix our health care system if he wants to win reelection. It’s an issue that many Americans care deeply about, and one that the President and Republicans should not be afraid to address.

The contrast between the Republican and Democratic visions for health care could not be more stark.

Democrats have called for more bureaucracy and more government control in our health care system—changes that have only driven costs higher and diminished choices for patients. But their interest in a single-payer, government-run system shows that Democrats have grander ambitions ahead.

In contrast, President Trump and Republicans want a health care system where patients and doctors—not bureaucrats—make critical decisions. One with more choices at lower cost. And a system where we have access to cutting edge treatments and cures.

The choice on health care is clear. Now, it’s up to President Trump and Republicans to make the case for why they’re right.
