Affordable Health Care


Affordable Health Care

The government takeover of health care is driving up costs, causing millions of people to lose access to their health insurance and doctors, hurting small business job creation, and pushing people into part-time jobs.  Tim Walberg voted to repeal the entire government takeover of health care and the worst parts of Obamacare.  Congress has passed and the president has signed legislation to repeal or remove funding for eight parts of Obamacare.


Tim is pushing for policies to make health care more affordable, including ending lawsuit abuse, allowing small businesses to join together to purchase health insurance at a more affordable price, letting people purchase health insurance across state lines, expanding the flexibility to health savings accounts, and giving individuals the same tax treatment as corporations when they purchase health insurance.  Additionally, Tim voted to repeal the medical device tax, which is costing Michigan medical manufacturing jobs and increasing the costs for life savings medications and devices.


Research, innovation, and preparedness are crucial to improving health care quality and finding ways to heal our loved ones.  Tim Walberg voted to encourage and protect university research by improving the patent process.  He also voted for legislation to help our first responders and communities prepare in case of a terrorist attack and health outbreak.
