With health care prices consistently on the rise, we need to find common sense solutions that will provide the best possible care to our residents. Particularly important in a district with many rural citizens is access to health care.
Access to quality and affordable health care is crucial, especially in rural Kansas. As your senator, I pledge to work tirelessly to ensure that rural health care facilities and their staff receive all of the resources that they need so Kansans get the best care possible.
Additionally, I will fight to keep the Patient Protections and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) from becoming law in Kansas. The constitutionality of forcing citizens to enter into a contract to buy any product is completely unfathomable. If the Supreme Court finds it "constitutional," then the State of Kansas must declare the law null and void. Article IV of the U.S. Constitution, the 10th Amendment, and historical precedent give us that right.
