Issue Position: Healthcare
Addressing important healthcare issues is one of the biggest challenges we face. Our challenges are not only ensuring quality healthcare for our citizens, but addressing certain advances in research as well. Federally administered programs like Medicare and Medicaid continue to suffer budget shortfalls and gaps in coverage. Cautious comprehensive reform is needed that continues to preserve the solvency of these crucial programs. Finally, Congress must also continue to address and find solutions to the challenges to accessibility of quality care that affects rural Oklahoma every day.
