Clay Higgins on Health Care
We don't have a health care problem in America. America is home to the very finest doctors and medical infrastructure in the world. We do not have a health CARE problem. Further, private health INSURANCE policies work relatively well. The health insurance policies themselves are not necessarily a problem: the problem is what these policies cost us. We have a health insurance EXPENSE problem. It's a problem that could easily be fixed. Lobbyists and special interests lead by the TRIAL LAWYER LOBBY in DC rigged our system long ago, when it was federally mandated that EACH STATE have its own unique infrastructure for every health insurance provider.
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."
