Matt Dunlap on Health Care

 


ObamaCare individual mandate is constitutional

On energy, the candidates agreed that Maine's next U.S. senator should work hard to maintain federal low-income heating assistance because of the large number of Maine families that can't afford to fill their oil tanks and heat leaky homes. They also agreed that the government should invest in weatherization programs to reduce the need for heating oil over the long term.

ObamaCare was one step; much more needs to be done

We need to approach health care reform not just as a problem of how to provide insurance to patients--we must also ensure that medical professionals can embrace health care as a rewarding career, and that the insurance companies and hospitals that provide these services can do so sustainably. This cannot be done in one piece of legislation; but Maine people can rest assured that as their senator, I will fight for every improvement to our health care system. I enjoyed the privilege of teaching English in one of our Community Colleges, and my wife worked as a high school teacher. My grandmother was a career educator, as was my uncle. My daughter is a student in the Old Town public school system. Investing in K-12 and higher education is the key to improving our economy. With an educated, prepared workforce, we will grow business here in
