Vote Smart's Research

  • "We should be focused on cutting costs and working to fix the problems in the Affordable Care Act to better serve patients. There were many important protections included in the law like preventing discrimination based on gender or preexisting conditions and increasing access to preventative care like breast cancer screenings, but the implementation of the law has been a disaster. The bottom line: Republicans are only focused on totally repealing the law, and Democrats are refusing to make the changes North Florida needs." (votesmart.org)

We must protect and preserve Medicare and Social Security -- both for seniors today, and for the next generation." (votesmart.org)
