Derrick Luther STYLE:
HEALTHCARE REFORM TO
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
Since March of 2010, the American people have had to suffer under the
incredible economic burden of the Affordable Care Act—HEALTH
INSURANCE is not Health Care. This legislation, written by Special Interest
Lobbyists, Passed & Voted by totally partisan votes in the House and Senate,
without "Reading", has tragically but predictably resulted in runaway costs,
websites that don’t work, greater rationing of care, higher premiums, less
competition and fewer choices. Obamacare has raised the economic uncertainty
of every single person residing in this country. As it appears Obamacare is
certain to collapse of its own weight, the damage done by the Democrats and
President Obama, and abetted by the Supreme Court, will be difficult to repair
unless the next President lead the effort to bring much-needed free market
reforms to "Health Insurance", while Aspiring to be the World Leader in Health
Starting with a few of the positive reforms accomplished by Obamacare
On day 1 of the "Luther" Administration, we will ask Congress to immediately
deliver a full &
NON - Partisan review of the ACA & sending Special Interests
2 the Back of The Bus.
Under a "Luther" Administration the Back of the Bus is Good, U have an
emergency Exit, RIGHT?
However, trying to simply repeal this legislation would be futile, thus, We will
work with Congress to make sure we have a series of reforms ready for
implementation that follow free market principles and that will restore economic
freedom and certainty to everyone in this country. By following free market
principles and working together to create sound public policy that will broaden
health care access, make health care more affordable and improve the quality of
the care available to all Americans.
Health Insurance is Not Health Care.
Tweaks for "Health Insurance" or ACA
Any reform effort must begin with Congress. Since Obamacare became law,
conservative Republicans have been offering reforms that can be delivered
individually or as part of more comprehensive reform effort. In the remaining
sections of this policy paper, several reforms will be offered that should be
considered by Congress so that on the first day of the Luther Administration, we
can start the process of restoring faith in government and economic liberty to
Our elected representatives in the House and Senate must:
1) Our elected representatives must eliminate the individual mandate. No
person should be required to buy Health Insurance" unless he or she wants to.
Health Insurance is Not Health Care
2) Modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state
lines. As long as the plan purchased complies with state requirements, any
vendor ought to be able to offer insurance in any state. By allowing full
competition in this market, insurance costs will go down and consumer
satisfaction will go up.
Health Insurance is not Health Care & by Limiting Access to Health Care it
Increases the Cost & limits Choice & Options
3) Allow individuals to fully deduct health insurance premium payments from
their tax returns under the current tax system. Businesses are allowed to take
these deductions so why wouldn’t Congress allow individuals the same
exemptions? As we allow the free market to provide insurance coverage
opportunities to companies and individuals, we must also make sure that no one
slips through the cracks simply because they cannot afford insurance. We must
review basic options for Medicaid and work with states to ensure that those who
want Affordable Health Care or
Affordable Health Insurance coverage can have it, With subsidies or grants to
purchase Health Insurance,
4) Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Contributions into
HSAs should be tax-free and should be allowed to accumulate. These accounts
would become part of the estate of the individual and could be passed on to heirs
without fear of any death penalty. These plans should be particularly attractive
to young people who are healthy and can afford high-deductible insurance plans.
These funds can be used by any member of a family without penalty. The
flexibility and security provided by HSAs will be of great benefit to all who
5) Require price transparency from all health care providers, especially doctors
and health care organizations like clinics and hospitals. Individuals should be
able to shop to find the best prices for procedures, exams or any other medical-
6) Block-grant Medicaid to the states. Nearly every state already offers benefits
beyond what is required in the current Medicaid structure. The state
governments know their people best and can manage the administration of
Medicaid far better without federal overhead. States will have the incentives to
seek out and eliminate fraud, waste and abuse to preserve our precious resources
7) Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe,
reliable and cheaper products. Congress will need the courage to step away from
the special interests and do what is right for America. Though the
pharmaceutical industry is in the private sector, drug companies provide a
public service. Allowing consumers access to imported, safe and dependable
drugs from overseas will bring more options to consumers.
8) Allow for "Catastophic" Health Insurance Plans to be sold by Health
Insurance Vendors, providing an affordable solution for individuals in
The tweaks outlined above will lower health care costs for all Americans. They
are simply a place to start. There are other tweaks to be considered if they serve
to lower costs, remove uncertainty and provide financial security for all
Americans. And we must also take actions in other policy areas to lower health
care costs and burdens.
Enforcing immigration laws, eliminating fraud and waste and energizing our
economy will relieve the economic pressures felt by every American. It is the
moral responsibility of a nation’s government to do what is best for the people
and what is in the interest of securing the future of the nation.
Legal Immigration is Good with "Shared Responsibility".
Illegal Immigration strains resources, increases costs, & reduces Income Taxes
& Shared Responsibility
Providing health care, education, food stamps to illegal immigrants costs a lot. If
we were to simply enforce the current immigration laws while granting current
Illegal Immigrates a seat at the table, we would Increase Taxes & reduce the
financial burden on our economy.
To reduce the number of individuals needing access to programs like Medicaid
and Children’s Health Insurance Program we will need to install programs that
grow the economy and bring capital and jobs back to America. The best social
program has always been a job – and taking care of our economy will go a long
way towards reducing our dependence on public health programs.
Finally, we need to reform our mental health programs and institutions in this
country. Families, without the ability to get the information needed to help those
who are ailing, are too often not given the tools to help their loved ones. There
are promising reforms being developed in Congress that should receive bi-
To reform Health Insurance is to Increase the quality of Health Care in
America, we need a President who has the leadership skills, will and courage to
engage the American people and convince Congress to do what is best for the
country. These straightforward reforms, along with many others I have proposed
throughout my campaign, will ensure that together we will Make America Great

"The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding
Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’
t take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the
Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our
families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple.
It’s been said that the Second Amendment is America’s first freedom. That’s because the
Right to Keep and Bear Arms protects all our other rights"
