Obamacare is broken. Certainly, some Americans benefited from the law, but far more Americans have been failed by it and are demanding relief. Our plan repeals this failed policy and rebuilding a healthcare system that is more accessible and affordable for Hoosiers, that protects coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and allows kids under 26 to remain on their parents' insurance plans.
Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN05) introduced H.R. 1104, the Veterans To Enhance Studies Through (TEST) Accessibility Act. When she met with the Department of Indiana American Legion last fall, high rates of unemployment and underemployment among young veterans was a top concern. This bill makes it easier for veterans to use the opportunities that licensing, certification and national tests provide to advance and enhance their education, and to build a career.
Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) is an original co-sponsor of H.R. 1121, the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2017, which reaffirms guaranteed healthcare access, ensures that enrollees cannot have benefits excluded from a plan due to a pre-existing condition, and that patients will not pay more based off of how healthy or sick they may be.
This year we celebrate 100 years of women in Congress, and the leadership of not one, not two, but three new committee chairwomen. In a new video, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) and Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), the new chairs of the Ethics and Education and Workforce Committees, and Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), interim chair of the Budget Committee, share their excitement for a fresh start and a new generation of women leaders in America.
I'm starting a new video series called 'What I'm Hearing" where I answer some common questions or concerns that I'm hearing from you. This week's episode focuses on a bill I co-sponsored to protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. I hope you'll watch this week's episode, and tune in for another installment of #WhatImHearing.
