Albert Olszewski on Health Care

 

 


Repeal and replace Obamacare, with bipartisan approach

As a physician and a legislator, my strategy for reforming our healthcare system consists of three parts:
  1. Immediate healthcare regulation reform.
  2. Repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
  3. The development of a new healthcare system utilizing a bipartisan approach.

    Halt expansion of Medicaid; halt ObamaCare unfunded mandates

    While Olszewski remains opposed to ObamaCare and voted against Montana's expansion of Medicaid last session, he said Republican efforts in Congress to replace the federal health-care law with the American Health Care Act--a measure lawmakers ultimately withdrew--were misguided.

    "The intent was good but it missed the mark," he said. "It didn't do anything to touch the very complex network of regulations. What is killing me as an independent business owner are the regulations and unfunded mandates."

    ObamaCare is imploding; shore up healthcare system

    Olszewski said, "Health care is in a struggle to decide what it's going to do in the 21st Century," he said. "Private health insurance is very unstable. And we're really at an area where ObamaCare is imploding. What we need to do is, we need to find a way to shore up, or fix the health-care system, so it doesn't collapse around us."

    [Olszewski opposed the unsuccessful Republican efforts in Congress to replace ObamaCare with the American Health Care Act as well-intended but "misguided".]

    Voted NO on insuring the working poor with federal dollars

    Gov. Bullock in State of the State speech said, "Rep. Noonan and I are proposing a uniquely Montana plan--based upon the popular Healthy Montana Kids Plan--that will extend coverage to tens of thousands of Montanans. The Healthy Montana Plan will bring our federal dollars back to Montana, to cover those without insurance.

    Rep. Olszewski voted NAY on Committee Report vote, March 10, 2015 (bill failed 41-59-0)
