Health Care

The rising cost of health care is a huge problem facing our nation. Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare, only serves to exacerbate the issue by further contributing to higher premiums, creating more barriers to care, and adding more money to our growing deficit. Instead of increasing competition, removing bureaucratic red tape, and focusing on the doctor patient relationship, the Affordable Care Act did exactly the opposite while creating a massive new entitlement program which we cannot afford.

I am committed to repealing this harmful legislation and replacing it with common sense, small government reforms with increase access to health care and lower costs for middle class families.

“Disease touches everyone at one time or another, whether through personal experience or that of a loved one or a friend. It’s heartbreaking to meet a grandmother whose retirement travel plans have been cut short by the onset of ALS or talk to a young mother of three who at age 32 is dying from incurable heart disease. These stories are all too common because there are 10,000 known diseases or conditions but only 500 cures and treatments for them,” Rep. Wagner said.
