All Americans deserve access to quality, affordable healthcare, but a government run healthcare plan is not the answer.
Our healthcare system is already strained and putting the government in charge will only exacerbate the problems facing the system. A government run system would increase costs and wait times for Americans and effectively eliminate private insurance. There are common sense solutions to lower prescription drug prices and protect individuals with pre-existing conditions that would lower healthcare costs and ensure Americans have access to quality, affordable healthcare. Ensuring access to care is important to maintain the health of the American people and I take this responsibility in Congress seriously.
