I believe that Obamacare has done more harm than good to our nation. While some provisions such as covering pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance until they are 26 years old have helped many in need, I also believe there are many harmful provisions to the law that have increased the overall cost of health insurance while giving the federal government unprecedented control over the American health care system.
People, not the government, are the source of prosperity in our country and they make the American health care system the envy of the world. What we need are commonsense solutions that will strengthen our health care system instead of stimulating debt and eliminating patient choice. One of the cornerstone pieces of President Trump’s platform during the campaign was to repeal and replace the ineffective and costly health care policies of the Obama Administration.
While Congress has so far failed to agree on how to move forward with repeal and replace, I can assure you that I am continuing to work with my colleagues on a patient-centered health care plan that will give all Americans the choice to obtain affordable health care coverage that fits their individual needs.
