Bob Marshall on Health Care

Republican Senate challenger


Patron of VA Health Care Freedom Act: challenge ObamaCare

Bob Marshall believes that the greatest single threat faced today by our healthcare system is ObamaCare. He has worked tirelessly to oppose ObamaCare, using every resource at his disposal. Bob Marshall was the Chief Patron of the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act, which was used by Virginia Attorney-General Ken Cuccinelli to challenge ObamaCare in Court. Since then, Bob filed three amicus briefs to support the challenges to ObamaCare.
  1. Bob's first brief was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit on April 4, 2011, in support of Ken Cucinelli's lawsuit in Richmond.
  2. His next brief was filed in the U.S. Supreme Court on November 3, 2011, urging the Court to review Virginia challenge's based on his Virginia Health Care Freedom Act.
  3. Bob's most recent brief was filed in the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Florida challenge to ObamaCare on February 13, 2012.

Tax credit for individuals buying private insurance

Congress should enact a federal health care tax credit that offers the same tax benefits to individuals who buy health insurance on the individual market that is now available only for buying through an employer. I support allowing people to own their ow health insurance coverage which they can take with them no matter what their job, and without incurring a tax penalty. I oppose socialized medicine or universal health care which many find attractive because they believe they will not have to pay for it.
