Fixing Health Care

Step 1 on the Road to Fixing Health Care

Health care is eating 18% of our Gross Domestic Product, more than any other nation on earth, up from 4% when I was a teenager.

Opioid Epidemic

A Real War Against the Opioid Epidemic

The opioid crisis is destroying us from within. Last year, 70,000 died from opioid abuse, twice the number killed in traffic accidents, and a 4-fold increase from 10 years ago.
