Health Care

John opposes repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but recognizes that our current health care system does not work for all Americans. By improving and overhauling the ACA, John will work to find a path towards providing universal health coverage for all.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more than 9 in 10 Americans now have health insurance. The ACA protects millions of Americans by preventing insurance companies from denying insurance to people with preexisting conditions, allowing young people to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26, and preventing insurance discrimination against women.

Repealing the ACA would not only eliminate these protections, but would also cause more than 2.6 million Texans to lose their insurance plans. States that have expanded Medicaid and passed legislation to address rising medical costs have made health care more affordable. John believes that we can work together in a bipartisan fashion to bring down the costs of insurance premiums, health care services, and medications by improving the ACA. John believes that by improving the ACA, we can find a path towards implementing universal health coverage.
