I was proud to vote to restore individual healthcare choices and government accountability by repealing Obamacare. I continue to hear personal stories from individuals in Central Washington about the uncertainty and dramatic cost increases Obamacare has created for their families and businesses. A top-down, mandate-centered, one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare does not work for families or businesses in Central Washington. Obamacare has caused health insurance premiums and increased deductibles to become less affordable for too many Americans, which is why I am working with my colleagues in Congress to ensure patient-centered care that will increase access and make insurance more affordable. Americans should have the freedom to purchase insurance across state lines, protection for patients with preexisting conditions, and care for our most vulnerable citizens.
