Health care is one of the most pressing issues for Michigan businesses and workers.
While there is a very real need to lower costs and expand access to care, government-controlled health care “solutions” like the public option or Medicare for All will not solve these problems. In fact, they will only create new ones for Michigan job creators and workers.
Moreover, the cost of a public option is extraordinarily high, with some projections suggesting that it would take a massive payroll tax increase of more than $2,000 for the average worker in America to fund.
Now is not the time to increase taxes on hardworking Michiganders or cost burdens on local businesses. For Michigan, the public option is not an option at all.
