Making Healthcare More Affordable

There’s no doubt the rising cost of healthcare caused by Obamacare has burdened American families and created a massive increase in bureaucracy resulting in less choice.  In fact, Martin and St. Lucie counties now have only one provider on the individual exchange. We need healthcare in the United States that increases choice and enables Americans to choose the doctors and plans that fit their specific needs, while still protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions and drastically lowering costs.  We also need to eliminate red tape to speed up the development of life saving cures and drive down costs for prescription drugs. When reforming our healthcare system, we also must protect and improve care for seniors and veterans.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Eliminating Obamacare’s individual mandate tax
  • Securing a new law to lower prescription drug costs
  • Voting to decrease individual market premiums
  • Strengthening protection against fraud for Social Security beneficiaries
  • Passing legislation to expand affordable health coverage
  • Securing $6 billion to combat the opioid epidemic
  • Protecting Medicare benefits and voted to expand access to treatments through Medicare
  • Increasing support for Alzheimer’s patients
  • Increasing funding for cancer research
  • Extending the Children’s Health Insurance Program for 10 years
  • Writing a new law protecting health care benefits for veterans
