The problem with healthcare in America isn’t access — it’s the too-high price tag, Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., said Sunday.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Scott said he prefers to fix the problem “piece by piece.”

“I know in the end the White House is going to have their plan,” he predicted, but added: “I’m going to focus on how you drive down cost… Democrats constantly focus on access. The problem is the cost of healthcare is too high in this country. 

Scott said Democrats only worsen the rising cost issue.

“The problem that Democrats have is everything they keep doing is raising the cost of healthcare,” he said. “Let's look at Obamacare. Premiums went up, copayments went up.”

He said he wants to focus “first on prescription drug prices. “

“They're way too high,” he said “We shouldn't be paying more than what they pay in Europe. It's unfair to Americans. And let's go piece by piece to try to fix it. ….I know a lot of people like the grand bargains. I don't believe in grand bargains. I believe in piece by piece fixing things.”
