As a small business owner and private citizen, I’ve seen the fundamental failures of Obamacare and the strain it has left on citizens across Kansas. The Obama Administration believed more government would fix our health care industry. Instead, the Affordable Care Act was anything but affordable, and left Americans with skyrocketing premiums, fewer choices, and a lower quality of care. More government is never the solution.

I believe Congress now has a responsibility to end the crippling ACA tax mandates and work together to replace Obamacare with a patient-centered system that reduces costs, promotes competition, and gives patients more control of their health care.
