Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn has unveiled a plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a different set of reforms.
Coburn along with Senators Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) released their proposal, the Patient Choice, Affordability, Responsibility, and Empowerment (CARE) Act, on Monday.
“Our health care system wasn’t working well before Obamacare and it is worse after Obamacare,” Sen. Coburn said.
“Americans deserve a real alternative, and a way out. I’m pleased to take this important step with my colleagues.”
The proposal focuses on repealing all of the current Health Care law, known as Obamacare, adopting reforms to offer patient protection, and changing government health programs for children and people in poverty.
