Greg Steube on Health Care

 

 


ObamaCare is biggest problem in healthcare industry today

We need to get the government out of healthcare. I believe the biggest problem in the healthcare industry today is the Affordable Care Act and the issues it has caused for many Americans. People need affordable and easily accessible healthcare and it is vitally important that we promote free market healthcare options for all Americans.

Opposes Affordable Care Act insurance mandate

[The latest] bill does away with the individual mandate. Faced with paying a penalty, many people chose to purchase health insurance. But many conservatives are fundamentally opposed to the idea of forcing people to buy health insurance and subsidizing it. "I never grew up with the understanding that the federal government was going to provide me with health insurance," said GOP state Sen. Greg Steube, who noted that he went without coverage in college "because I didn't want to pay for it."
