(CNSNews.com) – The fiscal 2012 budget proposal unveiled today by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R.-Wis.) offersÂ sweeping reformsÂ in federal spending, including defunding and repealing the health-care law signed last yearÂ by President Barack Obama and converting the federal share of the Medicaid program into block grants to state governments.
The RepublicanÂ proposal says one of its aims is â€œmaking sure that not a penny goes toward implementing the new [health care]Â lawâ€ enacted last year.
This includes repealing about $800 billion in new taxes that were built into the law.
The proposed Republican budget resolution lists as one of its â€œkey objectivesâ€ that it â€œRepeals and defunds the Presidentâ€™s health care law, advancing instead common-sense solutions focused on lowering costs, expanding access and protecting the doctor-patient relationship.â€
â€œThere is no way for â€˜expertsâ€™ in Washington to know more about the health care needs of individual Americans than those individuals and their doctors know,â€ says the proposal. â€œThe new health-care law, rammed through Congress last year on a partisan vote, has taken the nation one step closer to this fully government-run system.
â€œThe problems with this approach are already popping up all over the country,â€ says the proposal. â€œHealth care costs continue to escalate relentlessly. The new law has aggravated the worst aspects of the U.S. health care system, without fixing what was broken. The country needs to move away from this centralized system, not towards it.
â€œThis budget starts by repealing the costly new government-run health care law, saving roughly $725 billion over ten years by repealing the new exchange subsidies and making sure that not a penny goes toward implementing the new law,â€ says the resolution. â€œThen, this budget goes further with reforms that make government health-care programs more responsive to consumer choice.â€
On the health-care tax front, the resolution says: â€œThe health-care law enacted last year contained roughly $800 billion in new taxes and tax increases–the result of dozens of changes to tax law that added complexity and unfairness to the code.â€ The proposal calls for repealing all of these new taxes and tax increases as part of repealing the entirety of the Obamacare law.
