Affordable Care Act - Health Reform PDF Print E-mail

Most Americans followed the health reform debate closely, and I hope you'll read through the information below on my role in the process.

I believe this bill will build a stronger, healthier America and invite you to read my op-ed from the Nashville Tennessean on my decision to vote in favor of the comprehensive health reform bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 9590).

On April 7, 2010, I hosted an informative health care forum in Nashville to talk about the new law and how it will affect our families. View highlights of the event here.

On March 21, 2010, I voted for H.R. 3590. The President signed this bill into law on March 23, 2010.

A separate amendment or "fixes" bill to H.R. 4872, The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, was also passed by the House 220-211. I voted against these fixes and you can read my statement here. H.R. 4872 was signed into law on March 30, 2010.

In February of 2010, I was honored to be invited to the bipartisan health care summit at the White House.
