I support the full repeal of the federal health care reform law that was passed during the last Congress. While I agree that our health care system needs reform, we must pass reform that does not hurt job-creation or put unconstitutional mandates on Americans.
I will support reform policies that provide greater access to quality, affordable health care. Such policies include allowing individuals to purchase insurance across state lines and giving small businesses the ability to band together to create association health plans. I have also sponsored legislation that will allow individual taxpayers to fully deduct the costs of health premiums from their federal taxes.
