The American Health Care Act

The Affordable Care Act: Repeal & Replace

  • I’ve heard from a lot of families that are very concerned about their health insurance, and I share your concerns. Nationwide premiums and deductibles are going up, people are denied access and have limited options for providers and physicians. You deserve better.
  • California – particularly the Central Valley – is unique. The one-size-fits-all Washington approach doesn’t work, and the Affordable Care Act is a knot of tangled legislation filled with loopholes, taxes, cumbersome regulations, and uniform policies that cannot be undone. Its current path is unsustainable.
  • All Americans should have access to affordable healthcare coverage and have a choice in the type of plan they pay for and the care they receive. We’re already taking steps towards a replacement plan, and I am an original cosponsor of legislation to ensure that individuals with preexisting conditions are not denied coverage.
  • We also need to promote well-being through empowering individuals, reforming Medicaid and protecting and strengthening Medicare.
  • My commitment to you is to engage in meaningful dialogue with constituents so that we can improve the quality, access and affordability of healthcare in America.
  • This is a responsible step-by-step approach that will present Americans with multiple pieces of legislation to improve healthcare, rather than a single comprehensive and confusing 3,000-page bill that fails to deliver patient-centered results.
  • I want to hear your ideas! If you live in California's 10th congressional district, please take my survey and let me know how we can improve healthcare: http://bit.ly/2leu6T1
