While healthcare plays an incredibly important role in the lives of all South Carolinians, it is an extremely personal decision that should remain in the hands of the patients, families, and their doctor -- not Washington bureaucrats.
I'm a strong believer that Obamacare is not the answer to our healthcare needs and will continually work to repeal and defund it. Obamacare increases spending, raises taxes, and allows the federal government in-between a patient's relationship with his/her doctor and is an incredible infringement on our personal liberties. All the while, it does nothing to drive down the rising cost of healthcare.
While we must fight for affordable healthcare options, we must also remember that the quality of healthcare in America is far superior to anywhere else in the world. I will fight for free-market solutions to rising healthcare costs such as tort reform and purchasing health insurance across state lines.
