Health care decisions should be made between patients and their doctors, not by government bureaucrats. Health care policy must be focused on solutions that actually make care more affordable and accessible instead of expanding the size of the federal government.
Congressman Yoder believes Obamacare will ultimately result in higher cost of care, less access to care, and reduce the choice and quality of care that many Americans appreciate about our health care system. We’ve definitively seen that President Obama’s promises of lower premiums and the ability to keep your doctor if you want to have been broken. There is a better way.
We must repeal Obamacare and replace it with bipartisan legislation that would reform our system to focus on ensuring that everyone in our country – regardless of pre-existing conditions – would have access to affordable care without limiting patient choice or the quality of care.
Congressman Yoder will continue to reform our expensive and inefficient health care system by:
- Investing in critical life-saving cures through the National Institutes for Health for diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and many more debilitating and terminal ailments that cause pain and suffering for families.
- Allowing patients choice in their health care decisions by eliminating the provisions in Obamacare that stop Americans from picking the insurance plans they want or the doctors they prefer.
- Supporting health care competition by promoting Health Savings and Flexible Saving Accounts which give Americans control of their health care decisions and push health care providers to compete for business.
- Reforming tort litigation, significantly reducing health care costs by limiting frivolous malpractice lawsuits and reducing the growing practice of “defensive medicine.”
- Helping everyone receive access to care by supporting state-run high-risk pools that help reduce the cost of care for those with pre-existing conditions.
- Combating the Zika epidemic by attacking the virus at its source - the mostquitoes - by passing legislation that removes unnecessary and burdensome EPA regulations that prevent pesticides from being deployed, as well as providing supplemental funding to develop testing, treatment, and cures for the virus.
- Providing persons with disabilities the opportunity to succeed by removing government barriers that prevent them from seeking employment and creating savings accounts to secure their future. Congressman Yoder has been awarded the Champion of Change award by the National Down Syndrome Society for his work on the ABLE Act and other bills in Congress that help those with disabilities.
