The cost of health care continues to skyrocket. We must do more to reduce health insurance premiums so that health insurance is affordable to everyone. Congressman Smith supports legislation to allow small businesses to join together to secure affordable health insurance for workers.

One reason for these increasing costs is the rising cost of malpractice insurance for doctors and other providers. Congressman Smith has sponsored legislation, which recently passed the House, to rein in the costs of malpractice suits while preserving the rights of patients to recover for legitimate injuries. These are a few of many steps we can take to bring down the cost of health care. We must also reform Medicare and Medicaid so that they deliver high-quality health care in a cost effective manner.
