Federal health policy is very personal, and that is why I am working to get the government out of the middle.
Since coming to Congress in 2011, I have voted countless times to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA, otherwise known as Obamacare, has been a complete disaster. I have heard from constituents for years now on how this law has negatively affected them, and Congress is finally positioned with Republican President Donald Trump to work towards a free-market solution to the catastrophe that Obamacare has caused. It is time to stop this law from completely crashing on itself - the American people deserve better.
I have cosponsored H.R. 1072, the Obamacare Replacement Act, which has been put forth by Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Mark Sanford to implement free-market principles that will help drive competition and lower costs for all Americans. Some of these principles include purchasing insurance across state lines, forming Association Health Plans, and fully utilizing Health Savings Accounts. We also need to give states more flexibility by removing or reforming federal mandates on how they operate and innovate their own programs (i.e. Medicaid). One size does not fit all.

I look forward to your feedback on this issue. Thank you!
