Senator Carl Levin thinks that President Obama needs to proceed with caution on health care reform:

“We’ve got to do it in a way that presents choice: which is effective, which goes after the high cost of health care–which is skyrocketing. And, of course, we want to maintain quality,” said Michigan Democratic Senator, Carl Levin.

Sen. Levin has an important opportunity to push for the kinds of reforms that do help to lower the costs of health insurance: opposing community ratings systems, pushing for interstate competition in health insurance and lowering or removing coverage mandates that push up premiums.

Even the most regulated states, such as Canada, have costs rising far faster than the rate of inflation. No country in the world has had success in lowering health care costs without imposing rationing — something the American public is rightfully opposed to.
