Health Care Reform
The so-called Affordable Care Act is President Barack Obama’s legacy. Pat Roberts has opposed “Obamacare” at every turn, repeatedly voting to defund, repeal and replace it since its inception. In October 2013, Roberts joined Senator Ted Cruz’s effort to defund the law, where he was praised by Senator Cruz for his tough and tested opposition to Obamacare. He has called for Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to resign over the failed launch of the exchanges. Kansans trust Senator Roberts to fight for health care reform that reduces spending and increases access to quality, affordable health care. Roberts believes health care decisions are best made between the doctor and the patient without the federal government getting in the way. He’s a well-known champion for rural health care concerns working with hospitals and providers at every level of care.
