“Obamacare is one of the most costly pieces of big government legislation ever rammed through the Congress and I have voted repeatedly for repeal. I support patient-centered reforms that preserve your right to see the doctor of your choice, protects small businesses, and lowers costs." (drpaulgosar.com)
Voted in favor of H.R.3762 "Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015" (votesmart.org)
"America needs health care reform to lower costs, increase access, and enhance patient choice, and as your Congressman, I am committed to reform that is both patient-centered and market-based. That is why I strongly oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as "Obamacare". Instead of responding to Americanâs calls for greater choice and more affordable options in the health insurance, President Obamaâs colossal overhaul of the American health care system delivered a growing list of 20,000 pages of regulations that restrict choice, drive up insurance premiums and put more bureaucracy between you and your doctor." (gosar.house.gov)
"I support a full repeal of the ACA and believe we must create a system which empowers patients to be in control of their health care, not one that empowers government bureaucrats. One of my first votes as a member of Congress in 2011 was in favor of H.R. 2, which sought to repeal the ACA in its entirety. Since then, I have voted 57 more times to fully repeal or defund various provisions of the law." (gosar.house.gov).”
Derek: Congresspersons Gosar, Lesko, and Biggs all have voted to get rid of Obamacare, just as the President wants; but without a better plan to replace it. If you are already on Medicare (like most of Prescott. Trump’s supporters), this ‘better plan’ may not be important to you. But for everyone else, it can be a life and death issue; medically and financially. Think; is this what is best for Arizonans?
Even before taking office on January 20, 2017, President Trump made it clear that he wanted to repeal Obamacare (ACA), and in particular, the ACA provision that one could not be denied healthcare due to pre-existing conditions. That was the biggest objection by the Healthcare Insurance companies. Since becoming President, Mr. Trump has said he has a healthcare plan to replace Obamacare. But, every time his is asked when the public will see his COMPLETE “Trumpcare” plan, he says “it’s ready; it will be out in a few weeks.” But it still has not been made public. In the Sept. 30 Presidential Debate, he was directly asked about this by the moderator, Mr. Wallace. Mr. Trump’s reply was more of the same; he has a “wonderful” plan and it’s coming. Let’s be clear; he has no “wonderful” better plan or he would have released it. What has been released is posted on our website, (see menu item, above) and it is not better. Read it yourself and you be the judge.
