WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH CARE, I BELIEVE IN THE FOLLOWING CORE PRINCIPLES -
Since its enactment, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or “ObamaCare,” has not worked for Americans. From canceled plans to higher premiums (in 2017, Floridians will see their healthcare premiums rise by 19.1 percent), this law is littered with broken promises from President Obama.
Although I have voted to repeal this flawed healthcare law numerous times, I also agree Congress must offer a viable alternative, and not simply vote to repeal ObamaCare.
In the past, I have sponsored and supported legislation to expand pre-tax health savings accounts, health insurance portability, and coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.
In the future, I will continue to work with my colleagues on a comprehensive replacement package that focuses on patients and provides more choices instead of more mandates.
