Healthcare

Our healthcare system provides the best care in the world, but due to skyrocketing costs and loss of control, many Americans are unable to get access to the affordable, quality healthcare they deserve. 

Congress has takes a necessary step to this goal by updating and reforming Medicare. This important program can provide seniors with adequate healthcare options, as well as provide an affordable and comprehensive prescription drug plan which will reduce the cost of medicine by up to twenty-five percent. I also support legislation to provide affordable access to healthcare for small business employees, many of which are forced to go without health insurance. 

It is vital that every American be able to choose a healthcare plan that means their needs at a price they can afford. I am committed to finding solutions to our nation's healthcare needs.
