Healthcare is an issue that affects every American
By adopting the principles of competition and price transparency, we can take significant steps toward reducing the cost of healthcare.
We need to prioritize health
Healthcare is a fundamental concern that affects each and every American, regardless of their political affiliation. It is a matter that should bring us together, rather than tear us apart.
When we look at the facts, it becomes evident that our healthcare system is in dire need of reform. The United States spends a staggering amount on healthcare, nearly double what other affluent nations spend. Yet, despite this exorbitant expenditure, we lag behind in terms of life expectancy.
This begs the question: where is all this money going?
Despite the significant cost, our healthcare falls short.
We must ask ourselves why our healthcare system fails to deliver the results we deserve.
It is a sad reality that many Americans face difficult choices when it comes to their healthcare. Medical bills can cripple families, and people often find themselves trapped in a cycle of debt due to exorbitant healthcare costs.
The lack of accessible and affordable healthcare not only affects the physical well-being of our citizens but also hurts our economy and stifles innovation.

How do we bring down the cost of healthcare?
Bringing down the cost of healthcare is a challenge we face today.
And how do we get the price of anything down — competition.
And this principle can be applied to healthcare as well.
For true competition to thrive, we need something crucial: price transparency. Just like when you’re shopping for a TV, it’s important to know the price upfront. The same goes for medical procedures.
We should be aware of the costs before we make our decision.

We need to know how much a medical procedure is going to cost before we agree on it
Price transparency empowers individuals. It allows them to be proactive consumers of healthcare, just like when they’re shopping for other goods and services. It enables us to seek the best value for their hard-earned money, ensuring that they receive the quality care they deserve at a fair price.
You can compare the costs of different providers, evaluate the quality of services offered, and make an informed decision based on your needs and budget.
By promoting price transparency, we create an environment where healthcare providers are encouraged to compete on both quality and cost. This competition drives innovation, efficiency, and improved outcomes for patients. It’s common sense.

About the book
Will draws on his unique experiences in back alleys of dangerous places, boardrooms of international businesses, and the halls of Congress to lay out a detailed plan to “reboot America,” offering a fresh start to a country mired in political divides and internal strife.
Will Hurd tells a great story about his life and his experiences in the CIA, private business, and as a Congressman.
The book also serves as a playbook for like minded Republicans that want to transform the party from the extremes of Trump back to a solutions based party that actually gets things done.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. Part personal story, part political analysis, but mainly just common sense thinking and analysis of solutions to problems.
Will Hurd is an amazing writer and person and I expect to see him do great things in the future.
This was a great read. As someone who tends to identify as an Independent or moderate, I thought Mr. Hurd made some great points and offered thoughtful solutions.
I hope he considers a run for political office again, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.
A life long Republican I had lost hope that I would ever vote Republican again after the extremist views have taken over the party over the last 6 years.
This book covered all my values & concerns in a nuanced way that the majority of politicians today seem incapable of doing.
Will Hurd has spent the past 20 years on the front lines of the most pressing fights facing our nation, in the Middle East, Congress, and the highest levels of business and tech.
Will has spent his life fighting for our country, and he will take those decades of experience with him as he fights for all us.
The choice we face
In every decision we make, we stand at a crossroads. The path of division and quick fixes is well-trodden, but it’s time we consider a different route – one paved with unity and foresight.
Imagine an America where common sense prevails, where policies are crafted with the people’s best interests at heart, and our collective strengths are the foundation of national progress.
This is more than a possibility. It’s a choice we can make right now. By coming together, we have the power to foster a nation that champions innovation, inclusivity, and integrity.
