The Galen Institute just launched their latest radio ad airing on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, Grace-Marie Turner highlights the taxes, mandates and regulations in the current health reform proposals, and how Congress must start anew to enact meaniful health reform.

Transcript of the radio ad:

“I’m Grace-Marie Turner of the Galen Institute.

“President Obama is missing an opportunity to embrace a genuinely fresh approach to health reform. Instead, after a year of debate in Congress and the Blair House summit, we’re left with the same partisan proposals that are hugely unpopular with the American people, involving:

  •  hundreds of billions of dollars in tax hikes
  •  job-killing mandates on individuals and businesses
  • and onerous government regulations 

“According to independent experts, if the bills before Congress were to pass, health spending will continue to rise, premium costs will increase, people will lose the coverage they have today, and access to quality care will suffer as doctors and hospitals become insolvent. 

“Congress would be better off scrapping these plans and starting anew on a smaller, targeted bipartisan plan to address the real problems in our health sector.
