Congressman Thomas Massie

Representing the 4th District of Kentucky

Health

There exists no constitutional authority for the federal government to impose a mandatory health care plan.  I will therefore fight to repeal Obamacare.  Healthcare is a personal issue and belongs in the private sector.  The most efficient path to lower-cost, high quality healthcare is to open the healthcare industry to free-market forces.  Insurance should be available across state lines.  Healthcare providers should be able to expand service offerings without gaining permission from government regulators.  Healthcare consumers should have a full range of options including Health Savings Accounts and the ability to buy unbundled insurance services.

As an inventor and associate of inventors of medical devices, I understand that the FDA is a bottleneck to innovation.  American ingenuity in healthcare has improved and extended lives over the past 50 years, but the onerous FDA approval process threatens to extinguish the innovation and investment in one of our most prolific industries.  Our business unfriendly tax code is also pushing healthcare innovation overseas.
