Rep. Dave Camp came to Heritage’s weekly bloggers briefing today. He made specific recommendations for health care reform that leaves the individual in charge and actually reduces costs without raising taxes.

“80% of Americans have health care, and they don’t want to see it change in a fundamental way,” he said, adding that reform should include 3 things “that get the cost out of health care.”

  1. Common-sense liability reform that reduces doctors’ need to practice defensive medicine.
  2. Regulatory reform, so small businesses can group together in insurance pools.
  3. Strong anti-fraud provisions.
