Obamacare

I strongly oppose Obamacare and have voted over 50 times in Congress to repeal it. I also strongly oppose Congress receiving a special exemption from Obamacare. That’s why I cosponsored the bill to repeal Nancy Pelosi’s special deal for Congress. I will continue to the fight to repeal Obamacare. We need real reform of our healthcare system, and Obamacare doesn’t do it. As Congress continues to look for ways to delay, defund, alter, and repeal provisions of this devastating law, we must not stop exploring ways to improve both the quality and cost-effectiveness of our health care system. Medical malpractice (tort) reform is an idea that most Americans support that would bring down health care costs for taxpayers and improve access to care. Our current system increases costs both directly, in the form of higher malpractice insurance premiums, and indirectly, in the form of defensive medicine—when medical services are prescribed primarily to avoid liability rather than for the benefit of the patient. Placing reasonable limits on health care litigation would help reign in these costs and protect quality of care.
