Scott Howell on Health Care
2000 Democratic Challenger for Senate (UT)
A: I oppose dismantling Medicare and replacing it with a program that offers nothing like the coverage that the elderly now receive. I oppose forcing seniors into the private market to purchase more expensive private coverage. By upgrading the Medicare card and eliminating phantom billing and medical equipment fraud we can save $30 billion per year. allow Medicare to negotiate for lower drug price by using its bulk purchasing power to negotiate drug makers for lower costs. This would save $156 billion over 10 years. We should allow low drug importation from Canada. This would save consumers $80 billion over ten years.
