Health Issues

I believe the individual health insurance mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act represents a significant overreach by the federal government. It is also fiscally irresponsible. The new taxes and burdensome regulations in this law are driving the cost of healthcare even higher for working families, and straining our healthcare providers and small businesses.

I support reforming healthcare with market-based solutions to empower patients and doctors, and malpractice reforms to protect consumers and provide incentives for best medical practices.
