Protect Healthcare Freedom
Unleash Economic Growth Protect Healthcare Freedom Honor Our Veterans Push for Higher Education

On July 1, 2010, my Healthcare Freedom bill was signed into law making it illegal to impose insurance mandates on citizens in the Commonwealth.  The impact continues to be felt as people around the nation debate the outcome and its meaning for similar proposals pending in other states.

The passage of the bill is a simple bipartisan statement about where Virginians believe that their healthcare decisions should be made.  More importantly, the bill presents an opportunity for Virginia to prevent the federal government from usurping power over matters that are clearly left to individuals and the states under the U.S. Constitution.
There is no one size fits all solution and what works in Massachusetts or Arkansas, may not work in Virginia.  It is clear that healthcare costs and red tape bureaucracy continue to spiral out of control, but individuals should decide and not be subject to the dictates of a federal bureaucracy that manages healthcare.  
The debate, however, opens up an opportunity to create a free market system of healthcare in Virginia focused on patient-centered, common-sense solutions for our citizens.

Prevention, Affordability and Accessibility

All citizens of the Commonwealth benefit when efforts are made to cut costs in the long run by implementing preventive measures today.  We must also continue to foster innovative partnerships to provide accessibility to our veterans, seniors and to our most vulnerable citizens.
