I am a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the subcommittee with oversight of HHS and its response to the opioid crisis. I support funding for states to combat the opioid crisis and I have also backed legislation funding research into new pain relief treatments so patients can safely recover without the risk of addiction. I have also supported funding that will help our country find cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s. These diseases rob us of our loved ones and we must continue research that will bring us closer to finding life-saving treatments.

Today, the House Budget Committee advanced legislation to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act. The legislation is part of the budget reconciliation process, which allows it to advance through the U.S. Senate with support from a simple majority. It is not subject to a Senate filibuster.
Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) supported the bill and released the following statement:
“Make sure that the funding for our rural hospitals is strong and secure, because hospitals are a very important part of the community. And we want to make sure that there’s good technology as well as good care,” Moolenaar said.
