We face a crisis in our nation's healthcare system. Unfortunately President Obama and the liberal Democrats' healthcare legislation made things worse, not better. I believe that the law is unconstitutional and will work to repeal and replace it with a better plan that decreases costs and expands access to the best healthcare system in the world.

Real healthcare reform needs to directly confront the real factors that are driving costs up for both patients and providers. I support giving consumers the choice to purchase healthcare insurance across state lines as well as meaningful tort reform that will discourage frivolous lawsuits. A government takeover of healthcare is not the solution.
