Bert Loftman signed the Club for Growth, “repeal it pledge:”
“I, Bert Loftman, hereby pledge to the people of my District 9 of GA upon my election to the U.S. House of Representatives, to sponsor and support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover passed in 2010, and replace it with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”
This would repeal Obamacare, a plan that would make our health care system even worse. Our problem is a chaotic system of third party health care providers: Medicare for the retired, Medicaid for the poor, job-based health care for workers, and mandated emergency health care for the uninsured Americans and our illegal aliens.
I am a physician who is trained to solve problems and for years have dealt with the problem of our health care delivery system. Our third party payer system drives up costs to where health care is about 18 percent of our economy. It used to be 9 percent when patients paid for their own health care in a free market. Left alone, the free market will give us affordable health care and put patients in control of their own health care choices.
Other candidates want to “reform” health care by using unconstitutional means. The government caused our health care problems by using the income tax codes to encourage job-based health care. The income tax and Federal Reserve Bank discourage saving and people without savings are dependent and need Medicare and Medicaid.
The solution is not more unconstitutional manipulations of the income tax codes. The solutions are the FairTax, which replaces the income tax, and the control of the Fed. The Fed prints legally counterfeited money that causes inflation, and inflation eats away at our savings. This will encourage people to save and people with savings are in control. They have the means to be responsible.
I also pledge to the citizens in the ninth district of Georgia that I will honor our Constitution and not advocate unconstitutional so-called “conservative” health care plans. I believe in term limits and pledge to stay in office no more than six years.
