The rapidly rising cost of healthcare has made it more difficult for employers to provide and for families to obtain. Steve Chabot wants to help all Americans find affordable, quality care which is why he sponsored the Healthcare Affordability Act. The bill would make the cost of health insurance 100 percent deductible on our tax returns. Steve also would like to expand Association Health Plans to allow small businesses to pool their buying power and provide their employees with more affordable healthcare options. Further, Steve believes we need to curb the frivolous lawsuits that are hiking up medical malpractice premiums and forcing doctors to pass the cost on to patients.
