Since the introduction of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) healthcare costs have skyrocketed. Obamacare was introduced with the right goal in mind – providing the opportunity for every man, woman, and child to have affordable, quality health insurance.

Unfortunately, Obamacare missed the mark. Many families saw their insurance premiums rise so much that they could no longer afford insurance. Mike will work to strengthen Obamacare.

Today’s healthcare market forces American families to decide between food on the table or life-saving medicine. It forces employers to lay off workers or close their businesses to keep up with premiums. Rather than offering a state of mind, today’s healthcare pushes Americans against the wall.

Mike will stand up to keep protections for those with preexisting conditions. He will support policies that promote competition and transparency in the market to reduce healthcare costs.

Mike will fight for an America-First drug pricing plan. American pharmaceutical companies currently sell their products in other countries at prices that are far cheaper than here in America. Mike’s legislation would put American first, requiring pharmaceutical companies to lower drug prices which will drive down the costs of everyday pharmaceuticals and insurance premiums.

Mike pledges to fight against any Medicare for All proposal. Politicians don’t tell you that Medicare for all means abolishing private insurance. Many hard working union members throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania fought hard for their insurance benefits and Medicare for All would eliminate those benefits. Medicare for all is financially impossible and an unnecessary plan when we can accomplish these other goals.
