Paul Sadler on Health Care

 


Keep ObamaCare benefits for young adults & elderly

A topic regarding Obama's health care reform morphed into whether Cruz would support Sen. John Cornyn as Majority Whip. Moderators frequently had to guide each candidate back on topic.

But even through this chaotic back-and-forth, the two candidates owned their distinctively different political views. Cruz again cemented his vow to repeal President Obama's Affordable Care Act, while Sadler said Congress can't afford to take away the benefits the reform has offered to young adults and the elderly.

No Medicare overhaul; just strengthen the system

Q: How would you put Medicare on stronger financial ground?

A: I do not believe Congress should overhaul Medicare. The solvency of Medicare Parts B, C and D is insured by individual premiums. Part A is fiscally secure until the year 2026. Just as in the case of Social Security, Congress should consider options to strengthen the system and make it more fair. But this cannot happen until the voters of our state and our country send serious problem solvers to Washington, D.C.

Quality affordable healthcare is a fundamental value

Paul believes access to quality, affordable healthcare is a fundamental American value. Unlike his Republican opponents, Paul will oppose efforts to allow insurance companies to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions and to drop policy-holders who get sick. And he'll fight to protect the right of parents to keep their children insured until age 26. Paul Sadler will never play politics with women's health care.
