How does the plan affect millennials? Siraj Hashmi documents a new Kaiser Family Foundation study here showing its major benefits for millennials. The Millennial Policy Center is out with a statement on the Republican plan.
Jimmy Sengenberger, the 26-year-old President and CEO of the Millennial Policy Center, said:
“Perhaps no generation understands better than Millennials that no one is a better steward of a patient’s healthcare than patients themselves. Unfortunately, under the Affordable Care Act, individual stewardship has been strangled by burdensome regulations and rising costs. The nation’s healthcare system must be revitalized not only by repealing Obamacare, but by replacing it with an effective, vibrant solution that is patient-centered and consumer-driven.
“Any replacement must start by boosting individual choice, increasing insurance competition, slashing onerous regulations, and eliminating cumbersome taxes on businesses and individuals. The House Republican proposal released this evening is a good start on the road to achieving quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare. Our healthcare policy team looks forward to examining the legislation more closely and sharing our thoughts on how Congress can best address the challenges facing our nation’s healthcare system for the benefit of all generations.”
The Millennial Policy Center based in Denver, Colorado, is a “think tank program focused on engaging Millennials in discourse on public policy issues.”
