About Americans For Prosperity

Americans for Prosperity is dedicated to advancing the principles that have made societies more prosperous while enabling unprecedented human progress.

 

Completely overhauling America’s health care system by putting the government fully in charge will not solve the high cost of health care, nor will it give Americans greater control over their care. We don’t need a total government takeover of health care that raises taxes and imposes even more barriers between patients and the doctors they trust. We need a personal option that keeps what works and fixes what’s broken through targeted, sensible reforms. We need a Personal Option.

About Americans for Prosperity

Americans for Prosperity is committed to empowering every citizen to realize their American Dream and move our country forward together.

Most Americans do not support a government takeover of health care. We just want to fix what is broken and preserve what works. In many ways, our health care system works quite well. The United States boasts the best cancer survival rates in the world and some of the shortest wait times. And we remain the world’s leader in developing new, life-saving therapies and cutting-edge technologies. But improvement is needed. Health care costs are still too high for Americans. And too many families experience the heartbreak of bankruptcy due to high medical bills.

We have a history of bringing together successful nonpartisan coalitions to achieve what others said couldn’t be done.

Some people say the answer is to put the government fully in charge of health care (“Medicare for All” or “a public option”). While that simple “solution” might sound appealing, it cannot guarantee the basic protections people need. People in countries with single-payer health care typically endure chronic medical shortages, long waiting lists, and government rationing. Tragically, the people who suffer most are the most vulnerable: the sick, the elderly, and people with chronic medical conditions.

Our success means helping others improve their lives by empowering people to realize their unique potential.
