INDIANAPOLIS – All three GOP candidates have strongly supported dismantling our nation’s health care system and taking away health insurance from Hoosiers. Congressmen Messer and Rokita have repeatedly voted for proposals to dismantle our health care, including the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which passed in May. The AHCA would have raised premiums for the average Hoosier by $1,000 a year and allowed older Hoosiers to be charged as much as five times more than younger adults. It would have cut $800 billion from Medicaid and effectively gutted HIP 2.0 while kicking 300,000 people off of their health care.
Congressman Rokita co-sponsored AHCA, while Congressman Messer asserted that its failure was bad for the country. While in the Indiana Statehouse, Rep. Braun proposed healthcare legislation to allow the state to “get out ahead” of the repeal effort that ultimately failed.
