It's simple: Obamacare must be repealed. Premiums are skyrocketing, deductibles are increasing and coverage networks are shrinking. Government-run healthcare is not the answer.

We need health care reform that empowers Americans to take control of their care, to make sure decisions are made between a doctor and a patient. Bureaucrats in Washington should not be deciding what treatments a patient should be getting.

Health care reform must focus on these principles:

1. Strenghten the doctor-patient relationship

2. Encourage the use of health savings accounts for routine visits and preventive care

3. Implement market-based reforms that encourage private sector competition

There's no doubt that our health care industry needs reforms, but bigger government will make the problems worse.
