The reforms that we need most are: do away with the use of pre-existing conditions as a means of eliminating “problem” patients/insured lives for insurance companies; prohibit policy rescission by insurance companies; remove the restrictions on how health insurance can be purchased, i.e. permit out-of-state competition; we absolutely must have tort reform to control healthcare costs; and we must get “real” and eliminate deals between the administration and special interest groups—who are all pigs at the trough.
