Tomorrow, President Barack Obama will host a summit to discuss health care reform, but as Heritage’s Nina Owcharenko notes in this video, if the President is serious and sincere about making the summit a success, he should simply start over.

Owcharenko, who is Heritage’s Deputy Director of the Center for Health Policy Studies, says that the fundamental direction of the President’s plan is flawed.

“Most Americans want the problems in the health care system fixed, but they don’t want a federal takeover,” she notes.  But, as Owcharenko says, that’s what the House, Senate and President’s proposal do.

A true bipartisan solution would move in a different direction by empowering individuals and families to make health care decisions.

There are more conservative solutions, too. Watch Owcharenko’s video and share your thoughts below.
