Health Care

America is the global leader in health care.  However, that leadership status was put at risk with the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

I know that our country can provide access to quality health care for every American by repealing this law and improving our current system.  In order to achieve this goal we need to focus on these principles of reform:

•Lower health care premiums

•A guarantee of affordable coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions

•Protection of Medicare benefits for seniors

• A plan that strengthens the doctor-patient relationship and keeps private information private

• Enacting tort-reform

I believe we can accomplish health care reform the American people want without having a government takeover of our health care system, without raising taxes or premiums and without forcing citizens to buy health insurance they do not want or cannot afford.
