President Obama has placed the government between you and your doctor. That is unacceptable. The Obamacare machine is just getting started, and the impact of this misguided law will have long-term repercussions. We need leadership in Washington that will repeal Obamacare. Not only is Obamacare having an impact on individuals, but it is also stifling businesses from creating jobs.
We must also pass tort reform to protect doctors from frivolous lawsuits that drive up the cost of healthcare. In my discussions with doctors, they spend too much time and money on defensive medicine, meaning that doctors require x-rays and other defensive medicine to protect them in the event of a lawsuit rather than treating the patient’s issue. Once in office, I will work with doctors to improve this situation so that citizens aren’t paying more for their medical visits.
