WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Republican Health Care Solutions Group today unveiled a health care reform plan that will make health care more affordable, reduce the number of uninsured Americans, and increase quality at a price our country can afford.

The GOP plan makes sure that Americans who like their health care coverage can keep it - a stark contrast with the Democratic plan, which the Congressional Budget Office has said will shift millions of Americans out of their current coverage.

"When the Republican Health Care Solutions Group was formed, we agreed that our job was to build on what works and fix what's broken," Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-CA) said.

"We said that any serious health care reform plan needs to let Americans who like their health care coverage keep it - and we need to protect Americans from being forced into a new government-run health care plan that will put bureaucrats between patients and their doctors," McKeon said.

The plan outlined by the House Republican Health Care Reform Solutions Group aims to:

• Make quality health care coverage affordable and accessible for every American, regardless of pre-existing health conditions.

• Protect Americans from being forced into a new government-run health care plan that would eliminate the health care coverage that more than 100 million Americans currently receive through their jobs.

• Let Americans who like their health care coverage keep it, and give all Americans the freedom to choose the health plan that best meets their needs.

• Ensure that medical decisions are made by patients and their doctors, not government bureaucrats.

• Improve Americans' lives through effective prevention, wellness, and disease management programs, while developing new treatments and cures for life-threatening diseases.
