Our nation’s health care system is broken. Obamacare has made health care coverage more costly for many 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 difficult for Wisconsin families to make ends meet. I support repealing and replacing Obamacare with a more free-market system, while keeping parts of Obamacare that make sense, like protecting coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions. 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.
