The new grass-roots organization Partnership for America wants the “super committee” that will be formed under the debt-reduction deal repeal Obamacare and replace it, as the first step in cutting government spending.
“Substantial additional savings could be achieved if the ‘super committee’ were to propose repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and replacing it with a less costly plan — a move that could make reaching critical deficit-cutting goals far easier,” the group’s chairman James Wooton said Wednesday.
Former Congressional Budget Office director Doug Holtz-Eakin estimated that Obamacare will add $2 trillion over the next decade as opposed to the $1 trillion originally planned, largely as a result of employers dumping their coverage for current workers in lieu of federally backed healthcare.
“We are in the process of working with stakeholders to design a common-sense, market-based replacement for PPACA that will cover the most vulnerable Americans with secure coverage at a cost that is hundreds of billions of dollars less over a ten year period than what Congress passed in 2010,” said the partnership’s policy director James C. Capretta.
Partnership for America is a new, grass-roots organization that is dedicated to fighting for American independence from foreign creditors, foreign energy producers, and excessive government control.
“Huge cuts in federal programs, especially from defense and programs helping low-income Americans, could be avoided with genuine healthcare reform instead of the expensive federal takeover now in current law,” Wooton said.
