The Affordable Health Care for America Act is forcing changes in the fundamental structure of one of the best health care systems in the world. People continue to ask me, 'what do we do now'? My answer is to support the will of the people who do not want the federal government standing between them and their health care providers..
I will join the efforts of a new Congress to repeal the so-called 'Obama Care'. If we are unable to repeal it and replace it with new legislation, I will work to starve the implementation of the bad provisions of the bill by not voting to appropriate money.
This work will have to address the trillion-dollar cost; the special deals, and the improper placement of the federal government in decisions involving your and my health care. This can be done while saving the good provisions of the bill. We have time to repeal, make revisions and reforms in the bill before the majority of the new insurance rules and regulations take effect in 2014.
I will join the already ongoing efforts of Republicans and Democrats who are working together to eliminate the bad provisions of the bill. I will work to include provisions we all agree on including stopping denials for insurance coverage based on pre-existing conditions, eliminating restrictions that prevent Americans from buying insurance across state lines, and establishing basic ways in which we can bring more competition to the health care market.
The Affordable Health Care Act is not affordable. It creates an entitlement program that threatens the economic stability of our nation and is a direct threat to our ability to fund programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
Should we be surprised that the Administration's two-fold goal in health care of insuring 34 million additional Americans and controlling runaway costs has unintended consequences? We have unintended consequences in every program put forth by Congress in the last three and one-half years by taking over banking and wall street, the auto industry, and now the health industry.
I recognize that eight major hospitals along with thousands of health care professionals make Southwest Missouri a key regional and national provider of health care services. Health care leaders have continually advised me on the health care issues important to you and me. They have pledged to continue to work with me in your behalf.
I have a record in the Missouri Senate on working with others for solutions to solve problems. It us up to you to answer the question of which candidate has the experience and ability and can best represent your interest in the U. S. Congress
