Loma Linda, CA – Sean Flynn, Republican candidate to represent California’s 31st Congressional District, is calling for an end to the paralyzing gridlock over our nation’s healthcare system.
Last Friday, Flynn toured the Loma Linda University Medical Center to learn about how the healthcare gridlock in Washington is impacting patients, families, and businesses in San Bernardino County.
“People’s well-being hangs in the balance, and we have to end this political food fight,” said Flynn. “High-quality, affordable healthcare is essential for working families and business owners in San Bernardino County. Politicians in Washington are obstructing healthcare reform and defending a broken system. The current state of the healthcare debate highlights the degree of dysfunction in Washington. It’s time to get serious and work in a bipartisan way toward reform.”
A healthcare economist, entrepreneur, and author of Economics for Dummies, Flynn is proposing a health security plan that combines price transparency, guaranteed coverage accounts, and insurance associations for the self-employed and business owners.
Flynn believes that price transparency and well-funded, guaranteed coverage accounts will reduce costs, stimulate job growth, and improve the quality of care. Elective procedures that are wholly paid for by consumers illustrate how price transparency drives down prices and increases innovation. Well-funded, guaranteed coverage accounts have dramatically lowered medical spending and cut costs. Providing insurance associations for the self-employed and small business owners would create better coverage options at lower prices, and stimulate economic growth.
“Our current healthcare system—the world’s most expensive—does not work well for anyone,” said Flynn. “Seven years after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, 28.2 million people remain uninsured and healthcare costs continue to soar. Our system fails the sickest and most vulnerable among us, and it destroys jobs. Our elected leaders created this problem, now we must fix it.”
