American health care is in crisis. It is bankrupting our country. Government regulations prevent consumers from choosing health insurance policies that fit their needs. If Americans are going to have sustainable, affordable health insurance, current policies must be reformed to allow a consumer-driven health insurance market to develop.
But reforming health insurance policies isn’t enough. Health care cannot be transformed without changing the medical paradigm from one that is based on dangerous synthetic drugs to one that incorporates natural medicine, lifestyle changes, and prevention. Standing in the way is the Food and Drug Administration, a government agency that is funded by the same industry it is meant to regulate. Our FDA Death Meter site shows the toll that this crony medicine has taken on our country. If we don’t reform the FDA, then many more Americans will needlessly suffer.

- Supported expanding access to association health plans, where individuals with a common profession or interest can band together and count as a “large group” for health insurance purposes. These plans also do not need to adhere to Obamacare restrictions, giving Americans more health care options.

That means the actual number of deaths caused by the FDA looks like the following!
