Healthcare decisions should be made between a patient and their doctor. The federal government’s involvement only adds obstacles to these critical decisions.
Democrats attempts to impose a one-size-fits-all government takeover of the entire industry are dangerous and wrong. Their plans would create no choice or freedom for patients. It would increase taxes on the middle class. And it would leave important decisions that belong to individuals up to bureaucrats in Washington.
House Republicans are focused on responsibly solving problems when it comes to healthcare. We support coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions. We want to increase choices for patients. And we want to lower the cost of prescription drugs.
House Republican Legislation:
H.R. 892: To amend the Public Health Service Act to prohibit application of pre-existing condition exclusions and to guarantee availability of health insurance coverage in the individual and group market, contingent on the enactment of legislation repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and for other purposes.
H.R.944: To amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize a loan repayment program to encourage specialty medicine physicians to serve in rural communities experiencing a shortage of specialty medicine physicians, and for other purposes.
H.R. 654: To provide the Administrator of the Drug-Free Communities Support Program the authority to waive the Federal fund limitation for the Drug-Free Communities Support Program.
