Full repeal of Obamacare; empower consumers instead

Sarah Steelman will vote in the US Senate for a full repeal of Obamacare. Sarah knows that government-run healthcare would create a system that is less efficient, lower-quality, and more expensive.

Sarah believes in free market solutions that empower consumers to make better healthcare choices for themselves and through curbing the billions of dollars wasted on frivolous lawsuits. That is why Sarah Steelman pledges to work to enact medical malpractice lawsuit reform.
