Health Care

“I am committed to providing more affordable and accessible healthcare that gives Americans more control and more choices.”  - Congressman Steven Palazzo

I support Healthcare policies that:

  • Preserve and protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
  • Protect the healthcare of our Veterans and Service Members. We should honor them by keeping costs TRICARE costs as low as possible.
  • Reduce frivolous lawsuits against doctors that drive up the costs of your healthcare. Crack down on waste, fraud, and abuse.
  • Reduce taxes, penalties, and insurance premiums by repealing and replacing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
  • Reduce the cost of healthcare

I have been a staunch advocate of repairing a failing healthcare system. My goal remains to restore a health system that remains affordable. Not only have I advocated to repeal Obamacare during my time in Congress, but I also supports legislation that helps provide relief to many Mississippians. 

PPACA’s Individual Mandate and the Palazzo Right to Refuse Amendment:

The federal government should not be able to dictate what products you must purchase. Under the previous administration's healthcare law  every American must purchase health insurance or else face a tax penalty. This is known as the individual mandate under PPACA. This tax penalty is expected to hit millions Americans, with the majority coming from the middle class.

It is important that we repeal this government mandate. It is simply bad policy that leads to middle-class tax hikes and strips away your freedoms.

That is why I sponsored the Right to Refuse Amendment.  This constitutional amendment reverses the health care mandate tax. It simply states: “Congress shall make no law that imposes a tax on a failure to purchase goods or services.”

The significance of the Right to Refuse Amendment is that it would also permanently prevent Congress from passing legislation that forces Americans to choose between the purchase of goods and services or tax penalties.

I introduced this bill I believe the government has no business taking your hard-earned money just because you don’t spend it the way Washington wants. Click here to learn more about the Right to Refuse.
