Vote Notes on Legislation
HR 1628 – American Health Care Act: YES. Obamacare is collapsing. Last year’s average premium increase of 25 percent is expected to balloon by another 40 percent this year. Last year there was only one provider in a third of American counties; this year entire regions will be without ANY providers.
H.R. 1219 – Supporting America’s Innovators Act: YES. Venture capital firms loan money to start-up companies. Since the adoption of Dodd-Frank, heavy government regulation has severely reduced the amount of capital loaned by these firms.
H.R. 1304 – Self Insurance Protection Act: YES. Some employers set up their own employee health care fund, and will often buy stop-loss insurance that picks up costs above a certain amount, thus protecting the employer from catastrophic losses and assuring employees’ expenses are covered.
