Promoting affordable, high quality health care.

We must tackle rising costs by empowering consumers through a more competitive market.

HEALTHCARE Minnesotans expect and receive high quality and innovation from our health care system. But that system suffers from serious problems, and Obamacare is only making it worse. Minnesota must embrace the power of the free market to tackle the rising cost of health care, and it must empower consumers to be more involved in their health care choices, not disenfranchise them.
