Our health care system in the United States is the finest in the world. I oppose efforts to manipulate it like the Federal Government is planning to do. The fact is over 90% of the residents of Wisconsin have some form of health insurance and some of those who don't refuse it by choice.
The efforts at health care reform should not be to destroy our present system, but to improve it. In the last session of the legislature, we passed a bill that allows health savings accounts to be tax deductible at the state level. There are also efforts underway by health care providers to keep better track of patients' visits to emergency rooms and to prevent doctor shopping to illegally obtain drugs.
While we have room for more improvement in our health care and health insurance systems, I believe we are on the right track and I am hopeful that our federal government will repeal "Obamacare" next year.
