Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has outlined a healthcare strategy, which calls for returning regulation power to the states and relying on market-based solutions, his spokesman Mark Miner told The Texas Tribune
Step one would be to repeal Obamacare; Perry would “start over,” initially by improving the economy to stabilize corporate finances. Next he would “free states from federal mandates and empower them to develop innovative solutions,” Miner said
Then he would act to curb the explosion in medical costs “through the proven, market-based strategies of transparency, choice and competition,” he said.
Under Perry, states would have the authority to boost competition among insurers, solve the insurance problems of people with pre-existing conditions, cut costs for small businesses, and restructure medical malpractice laws, the spokesman said.
