Sen. Richard Burr says he doesn't need 1,000 pages to reform health care.
"The health care reform does not take 1,000 pages. I could boil it down to one word that makes a huge difference: portability," Burr said. "That gives you the ability to take your coverage with you."
Burr said such a system would ease the adversarial relationship between insurance companies and health care providers.
"We can use one word, we can use five pages, but we don't need a host of mandates on private insurance where states currently do that today," Burr said.
