Health care is one of the most important issues for Americans.
First, Lindsey Graham believes no American should be denied medical coverage or insurance due to a preexisting condition.
Second, Senator Graham favors health care solutions which put patients – not government bureaucrats – in charge of medical decisions.
Third, Senator Graham opposes “Medicare for All,” which puts the government in complete control of the health care system.
So what’s the best way to bring down health care costs, cover more people, and make health insurance more affordable? Redirect money and power over health care decisions away from Washington and return it to patients, local communities, and states.
Just like no two patients are the same, no two states have the same health care populations and health care needs. Simply put, what works in Massachusetts may not work in South Carolina. And what works in South Carolina may not work in California.
That one-size-fits-all thinking is one of the many failures of Obamacare which centralizes money and decision-making in Washington.
Instead of continuing to empower Washington, Senator Graham supports returning money to the states and empowering local communities to explore and utilize health care solutions that work for them.
Recognizing the unique needs of South Carolina’s rural population, he has used the Appropriations process to bring millions of dollars to telehealth efforts, which aim to ensure every South Carolinian has access to quality medical care, regardless of where they live.
Senator Graham has also been at the forefront of funding important medical research. He is a co-chair of the Senate’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) Caucus, which has successfully secured billions of dollars of additional funding.
