Many proposals to reduce federal spending on health care would simply shift that spending to individuals, businesses, and states. Such proposals would fail to reduce overall spending on health care without rationing care. In some cases they would actually increase overall health care costs.
The Senior Protection Plan is a superior approach. Instead of harming seniors and others, the Senior Protection Plan would improve the efficiency of the health care system, eliminate waste, and improve the quality of care. This approach would reduce overall health care costs—the best way to reduce federal health care spending.
