I am a strong supporter of a low cost, high quality healthcare system accessible to all.
I stand with the vast majority of Americans who believe that access to a high-quality affordable health care system is a critical priority.
I do not believe that the best (or only) way to accomplish this goal is to have the government become the sole provider of health services, or for the government to become the only provider of health insurance.
I believe that market-based health care systems will provide the cheapest cost and highest quality services for all Texans.
I will aggressively advocate for:
transparency in medical services pricing
elimination of occupational licensing restrictions for health industry workers
ability to purchase health insurance across state lines
clean needle exchange programs, and
reforms that will reduce costs and increase quality and access of health care.
