The impact of Obamacare’s failure on all Americans is real: higher costs, more taxes, and fewer choices. Congress must act and provide relief to the American people from the disaster that is Obamacare by providing healthcare reform that is affordable, accessible, and empowers patients in choosing their own care from their own doctors.

WHAT WE ARE READING
“The President endorsed spinning off air-traffic control from the Federal Aviation Administration, a decades-old idea that would improve passenger experience and safety” – The Wall Street Journal
“Privatizing air traffic control isn’t a new, or untested idea. It has a proven track record of success around the world, and it’s long past time for the U.S. to follow suit.” – Investor’s Business Daily
“On Monday, President Trump endorsed getting the job done by creating a private, non-profit corporation that would apply business principles and provide a steady stream of financing. This change would free air traffic control modernization from two major sources of delay: the bureaucratic process used to select contractors, and Congress’ crazy, on-again, off-again budget process that disrupts long-term planning.” – USA Today
