The tax-free MSA, Original Pilot Test, was born in Kennedy-Kassebaum Legislation in 1996. The MSA was restricted to 750,000 self-employed individuals and their employees or 4 years, whichever happened first. I enrolled the 1st MSA in October of 1996, the same month FOX News was born. I was advertising the MSA on WHO Radio (The Reagan Station) beginning in 1997. In 1999 I advertised, “Governor George W. Bush supports MSAs for all Americans but if you are self-employed you can start today! Go tax-free with an MSA.

On August 15th, 1999 Governor Bush said at the Ames Straw Poll, “I believe in more options, more choices, more FREEDOM in Medicare including Medical Savings Accounts (MSA).

In 2001 Nobel Prize Winner Milton Friedman wrote How To Cure Health Care. Milton Friedman did a wonderful job of explaining why American health care was truly sick because of government policy. It was as if Milton Friedman was looking 21 years into the future and analyzing America’s problem of health care in 2022. Friedman noted that America was unprepared politically to solve its health care problem in 2001. Friedman predicted that someday America will be politically ready to cure health care.

Milton Friedman’s cure for American health care is MSAs! He reported, “Minor in the current scope, the MSA is pregnant of future possibilities.” In 2004 Congress renamed MSAs to Health Savings Accounts (HSA) for people under the age of 65. In 2022 there are 32 million HSAs with almost $100 billion in assets. In 2022 President Trump’s Executive Order to improve Medicare with MSAs is making Texas Governor George W. Bush’s dream of MSAs in Medicare come true.

I knew the MSA was magical because the 1st MSA was a 24-year-old with an insurance premium of $24 a month. With his MSA deposit, the 1st MSA saved more in taxes than the cost of his insurance! I call that affordable health care!
