As a matter of principle, the people of Kentucky should have the freedom to choose the doctor, plan, and medications that are right for them -- plain and simple. Decisions affecting your health shouldn't be made by some distant, corporate, health insurance company OR out-of-touch, Washington politicians. We DO need healthcare reform, but we do NOT need a one-size-fits-all, government-run health system. As your state representative, you can count on David to fight for lower healthcare costs by...

-Cracking down on the waste, fraud, and abuse that bogs down the state's Medicaid system so it can finally work more efficiently for those who really need it

-Taking a balanced approach to ending the frivilous lawsuits that drive up the cost of healthcare and force doctors out of business and out of state

-Encouraging greater competition among insurance companies, allowing for lower consumer costs and a more hassle-free healthcare experience

-Voting against any government take-over of the healthcare system that would result in higher insurance premiums, higher taxes, and less quality in our care

Ultimately, healthcare should be about patient choice and control. It should be about having healthcare services that are more accessible, more affordable, and more convenient, so that they will be there when you need them most.
