Doug remains committed to Medicaid expansion in Alabama, which could bring health care to as many as 340,000 Alabamians and generate much-needed funds for our rural hospitals. Doug has introduced a bill that would reset the clock for states that did not initially expand Medicaid, allowing states like Alabama to enjoy the full benefits of opting into the program.

Obamacare must go. This failed experiment has led to higher costs, less quality care, and a system that hurts patients and doctors more than it helps. I believe that we need a return to the free-market where companies compete for your business, while ensuring that pre-existing conditions are not a deterrent to obtaining quality insurance and care.
