There are real consequences to basing environmental policy on politics rather than facts or science. Energy policy doesn’t have to be complicated.

The battle to repeal and replace ObamaCare isn’t easy, but it is a fight we will eventually win. Through my work at the Energy and Commerce Committee, we have removed many parts of this law but will not stop until the job is done. This trillion dollar job-killing, care-rationing, tax-raising law is proving itself to be unsustainable, unaffordable, undesirable and I believe, unconstitutional.
I continue to work to make sure we replace ObamaCare with common sense, market-based reforms that will actually lower costs for small businesses, expand access to affordable care, and protect jobs.
I think the current law over-reaches and expands the role of the federal government into places it doesn’t belong. Medical decisions should be made by a doctor and patient, not a Washington bureaucrat.more info
