Health Care

America needs to develop common-sense health care reforms that not only respect families and the patient-doctor relationship, but also consider any and all opportunities to lower skyrocketing health care costs altogether.

As a member of the private sector, I saw firsthand how companies tried to grow and create more jobs – but they simply couldn’t due to the strangling grip of Obamacare. Small businesses have been forced into plans that cover less, with higher co-pays, higher deductibles and higher premiums. The current system is hurting our families and small businesses, and will continue to do so unless changes are made.

I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House to create a system that works for more Americans than the failures we’ve seen from Obamacare. We must put an end to the broken promises and ensure Americans have access to the high-quality, affordable health care they're after.
