Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Health Care

I firmly believe that all Americans should access to affordable health care, including coverage for pre-existing conditions, but there is a big difference between having health care and having health insurance. We must put control of health care decisions back into the hands of individuals, families, and their doctors. Instead of making health care more accessible and more affordable, Obamacare has only made it harder for many Amerians to access the health services they ned. Thousands of Coloradans  have had their health insurance plans cancelled, because Obamacare is making it near impossibe for insurers to provide plans in our state. The law has also forced many small businesses to cut their employee health insurance benefits. As we continue our work to fix the health care system by repealing and replacing Obamacare, I will support legislation that allows the free market to work and competition to drive down health care costs.
