As a business owner I’ve experienced the escalating cost of healthcare paid by small businesses in Wisconsin. The ability to afford quality healthcare plans for employees becomes a greater challenge every year and continues to be an issue of both affordability and competitiveness.
We need to continue to push for lowering healthcare costs with market-based solutions that will create competition, foster greater transparency of medical costs, and empower patients. We don’t need more government run solutions that will only add healthcare bureaucracy, limit patient choices, and restrict doctor practices.
I applaud Governor Walker's choice in avoiding a state-run health care exchange in Wisconsin. We should not make Wisconsin taxpayers foot a massive health care bill that the federal government can't even afford.
I have been an outspoken critic of Obamacare and supported Governor Walker’s decision to challenge it in the courts. With the U.S. Supreme Court ruling it is the law of the land and now with the reelection of President Obama, Obamacare will unfortunately be moving forward.
I will fight to protect the rights of law abiding citizens to bear arms as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. We need to enforce current laws to ensure firearms stay out of the hands of violent offenders.
