Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has unveiled an alternative to the Affordable Care Act, which he sees as ‘a flawed law.’ His plan takes a state-focused approach. 

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also serves as vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association and is considering a run for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. He spoke at the April 2 Monitor Breakfast.

His view of President Obama‘s Affordable Care Act:

“This is a flawed law. It is causing over 2.3 million fewer people to participate in the workforce. It is not decreasing health-care costs, not decreasing premiums.”

The 26-page plan he unveiled at the breakfast to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with a more state-focused approach:

“This conservative health-care plan puts the patient, not government and insurance bureaucrats, in control. And that is really the most fundamental question: Who do you want to be in control?”

His role in 2016 presidential politics:

“It is no secret it’s something I am thinking about. But right now I am focused on winning the war of ideas and also focused on winning these [governors’] elections in 2014.”
