The special election to fill Jeff Sessions' seat in the U.S. Senate is underway, and health care should be a central issue.
This blog entry will endeavor to compile what there is from the candidates on health care (to be updated as more is provided by the candidates).
The special election is in the context that the biggest Congressional activity already in 2017 has been about health care. There are numerous blog entries here as a result, which may be accessed starting at Health care. The blog entries may aid readers in evaluating what the candidates say in the election.
From the candidates
1. From Will Boyd's Issues webpage regarding health care
2. From Randy Brinson's Issues/ Repeal Obamacare webpage, this:
As a physician, Randy has seen first hand the destructive effects of Obamacare on patients, their families, doctors and hospitals. He supports the complete repeal of Obamacare and replacing it with common-sense, truly affordable health care reform. Since that doesn’t appear likely to happen in this Congressional session, Randy will be ready on his first day to introduce legislation that will reign in the bureaucratic overreach of Obamacare, allow market-based insurance plans to be sold across State lines, require Medicaid block grants to States to cover the indigent through competitive bidding, and restore the power to make healthcare decisions to patients and their doctors.
