On the Issues

Healthcare

As the father of a daughter with epilepsy, finding ways to ensure access to quality, affordable health care is one of my top priorities. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has helped millions of Americans and thousands of Coloradans gain access to quality healthcare coverage. Most importantly, the ACA ensures individuals with pre-existing conditions can no longer be discriminated against and kids can remain on their parents’ plan until the age of 26.

Health care is an issue that touches many people in different ways, and we have to ensure the ACA works effectively and keeps health care affordable so more people can get the kind of quality care they deserve. I will work with anyone to improve the ACA and I will continue to fight against attempts to repeal or replace it.

Additionally, I will continue to support stem cell research because this research provides the greatest promise we have to find a cure for medical conditions such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. I feel it is our responsibility to invest in research that could save millions of lives. Nearly everybody has a family member, a friend or colleague who could benefit from stem cell research.

I also believe medical decisions should be between women, families and medical professionals. Government should not be involved in a woman’s reproductive health decisions.
