This Congress will be a consequential one giving us the opportunity to repeal Obamacare and bring patient-centered, market-based reforms to the healthcare industry. This burdensome tangle of laws and regulations is producing unintended consequences that slow innovation and make health care more unaffordable. We must get the government out of the health care business and put consumers back in the driver’s seat. Americans deserve health care that meets their needs rather than a Washington mandate. Obamacare has exacerbated existing problems in our health care system, and I look forward to implementing solutions that are consumer and market-centered, not government mandated.
