Doug Ducey on Health Care
KidsCare: Protect low-income kids' healthcare
There are so many issues we can find common ground on. Like protecting the lives of children in our state. That's why we acted to prevent 24,530 low-income children from getting health insurance cancelation notices days before Christmas, as

ObamaCare is a monumental failure
The Issue: ObamaCare is a monumental failure and has made a royal mess of health care.

We want to care for our most vulnerable and needy citizens, and we want our health care options in Arizona to be the best in the nation. Medicaid is a program originally designed to take care of the destitute
and disabled, but it's now being expanded as a middle class entitlement. We need to focus our efforts on people who genuinely need the help and can't do without it.
