John Faso on Health Care

 

 


Replace ObamaCare with patient-centered choices

ObamaCare has raised premiums, distorted insurance markets and reduced the quality of care for too many Americans. The employer mandate has reduced full-time employment at a number of Upstate businesses. Many business owners have told me of increased premiums and less choice as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

I will seek to repeal and replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered approach that provides more choices to families. I would also provide the same tax treatment for health insurance purchased by individuals and small groups as now accorded to employer provided health care. We should also expand access to community health centers for the indigent and uninsured. Lastly, each person should be afforded the ability to utilize a flex spending account for routine medical expenses. We need to restore an economic relationship between medical providers and consumers as a way to bring more people in touch with what medical care actually costs.

Supports repealing mandated health insurance.

Faso supports the CC survey question on nationalized healthcare

The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Repealing the Nationalized Health Care System that Forces Citizens to Buy Insurance or Pay Fines' The Christian Coalition notes, "You can help make sure that voters have the facts BEFORE they cast their votes. We have surveyed candidates in the most competitive congressional races on the issues that are important to conservatives."

Supports repealing the 2010 affordable care act.

Faso supports the PVS survey question on ObamaCare

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare")?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
