My Opinion

  • We need healthcare insurance reform

  • No Universal Healthcare or Public Option

  • Allow Inter-State competition

  • Put limits on malpractice lawsuits

  • Free Market Theory

  • Keep current healthcare no matter if you change or lose your job

  • Give small business tax credits if they provide health insurance

  • Allow dependents to stay under parents until 25

  • Prevent insurers from dropping coverage
