Our nation’s health care system is broken. Obamacare has only made health care coverage more costly for Wisconsin families and has forced millions to lose their preferred doctor, health plan, or both. The new taxes, mandates, higher premiums and the marriage and work penalties found in Obamacare are unfair and have made it even more difficult for Wisconsin families to make ends meet. I support repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Moving our health care system in the right direction requires standing strong on foundational principles. First, health care reform must be patient-centered. This means empowering patients with the ability to make responsible choices in all aspects of their health care and health insurance. Second, health care reform must adhere to free-market principles. This means that hospitals, doctors, and health insurers must be free to compete among themselves to provide the best service at the lowest cost to the American people.
