On healthcare, I am the ideal choice because I understand what it is like for a middle class family with young children to handle unexpected costs, emergencies, and insurances that do not fit our needs. Like most of you, I realized the unaffordability of Obama-care and how we could not trust any government run program that cannot even roll out a website.
While Universal (government) healthcare will be a complete disaster I will lead the fight on where there is common ground like accessibility, pre-existing conditions, and preventive approaches vs treatment. Because affordability is a huge factor in healthcare, I will lead the fight to eliminate state-based health insurance with a full free market approach that provides greater options at a much- reduced cost. Other fights include deregulation to bring healthcare products / services to market more quickly and eliminate / reduce taxes and fees on healthcare related items.
On the campaign trail, I will have a Healthcare Liaison to listen to your concerns and needs so we can shape the solution together. Together we will form a realistic patient-focused approach that I can take to Congress.
