There has been much discussion over the unveiling of the American Health Care Act, which is intended to be the replacement to the Affordable Care Act, largely known as “Obamacare”. Congressman Rodney Davis spoke with Regional Radio News and said the bill will serve as a tool to fix what he called a broken system.
Congressman Davis said if changes aren’t made to the current health care system, Illinois will pay the price.
One area many Central Illinois residents have struggled with in the current system is the rising cost of premiums. Davis echoed those concerns, and said he feels the architects of the affordable care act drew it to fail.
One goal of the new American Health Care Act Davis shared is to increase the amount of options citizens have for health care coverage, while bringing down the overall cost of coverage.
