Health Care

Health care reform must ensure that quality coverage is affordable and accessible for every American, regardless of income or pre-existing conditions. But it must not force Americans into a government-run health care system that would eliminate coverage they receive from their employer.  Nor must it mandate that business or individuals pay for coverage.  Every American must have the right to choose the health plan that best meets their needs and medical decisions must be made by patients and doctors, not government bureaucrats.

Last year I had the privilege of meeting a brave young boy from Austin, Rex Ryan. I met this tenacious 4-year-old at Dell Children’s Hospital during his clinical trial for the first FDA-approved childhood cancer drug in over two decades, Unituxin. Rex had been fighting neuroblastoma since he was just 18-months-old and, until just recently, all traditional methods of treatment had been exhausted. Now Rex is living a healthy life without cancer.
