I am so happy that our Second District Art Competition winner, Shannon Kelly, was able to attend the formal reception hosted in honor of the winners. She and her mother were able to celebrate Shannon’s accomplishment with the other Art Competition winners from around the country. In addition to the reception, the mother-daughter duo were able to see where Shannon’s drawing will be displayed on Capitol Hill.
Also this week, the House made huge strides as we put forth our formal plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Having served as a nurse, I know how detrimental Obamacare has been to patients and families and the severe impact it has had on our economy. I decided to run for office in 2010 after hearing about the president’s proposed takeover of our healthcare system, and as a member of the House Doctors Caucus and the Republican Study Committee, my colleagues and I have worked to replace Obamacare with patient-centered reforms. The plan put forward by House Republicans this week gives every American that reality.
Our plan returns power to patients and their doctors, giving them the opportunity to make healthcare decisions as opposed to the government making them. This proposal is bigger than just a replacement bill – it’s a conservative, long-term vision that will be used to guide decisions as we make substantive reforms to our nation’s healthcare system.
