Health Care

I believe all Americans should have access to the high-quality, affordable health care of their choosing. I fully support ensuring coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and believe that free market solutions and competitive innovation, not government mandates, will provide coverage options that suit the specific needs of Pennsylvania's families. Congress must work to pass real reforms that will address the rising costs of prescription drugs, encourage innovation in treatments and cures, and preserve coverage choice.
