Congressman Dave Brat’s Bill to Reform Health Savings Accounts

Virginia’s 7th District Republican Congressman Dave Brat has introduced one of the first Republican plans to begin replacing Obama’s Affordable Care Act, and revising the healthcare system. Brat’s plan would reform the Health Savings Account, increasing contribution limits, repealing over the counter restrictions and eliminating the high deductible health plan mandate.

But it is a small part of the healthcare puzzle.

Dave Brat: “The biggest issue that all this is aimed at, of course, is sustaining the entitlement programs already in place. And that’s often not covered in this conversation, and that’s amazing, social security and medicare are both insolvent in 12 years.”
