While we await the federal government overhaul of healthcare and what it will mean to the average Missourian, we need to look for answers to improve healthcare here at home. We especially need to improve the access to healthcare for the average working family.
John believes we need to look at passing laws allowing consumers to purchase health insurance across state lines which dramatically lowers insurance costs by creating more competition and more choices for consumers. We need to crackdown on Medicaid fraud that is costing millions of dollars annually--money wasted that could go to improving health care access and containing costs.
John also believes that the legislature should work to protect our families from repeat DWI offenders that continue to endanger the safety of those in our community. John will work to close loopholes that allow repeat DWI offenders from drinking and driving and push for harsher penalties for those convicted of driving under the influence.
