Health issues affect us all and determining the best means of addressing them is an important part of my work in Congress.
Tennesseans deserve access to affordable and quality health care. I am opposed to any efforts to move our health care into a single payer system that puts a government bureaucrat between you and your doctor. President Obama’s government takeover of health care is costly, overreaching, and threatens our freedoms. I will support and continue efforts to defund and repeal Obamacare in order to replace it with common sense reforms that reduce health care costs and provide access to all Americans.
Allowing free enterprise to work is the best solution to developing the strongest health care for Tennessee families. Upon entering Congress, I declined to accept the government provided health care offered to Members of Congress and instead continue to receive health care services for myself and my family through a private plan.
