Obamacare is raising the cost of healthcare and placing government directly between you and your doctor. That’s why Ben voted against Obamacare expansion in the General Assembly. Ben has a consistent record of supporting local clinics and fighting to grow medical services in Southwest Virginia. As your Senator, Ben understands that access to healthcare is essential to the growth and quality of life of Southwest Virginia
Ben believes that to better provide and deliver critical healthcare services for our citizens, we should encourage schools to incorporate more training, degree, and certificate programs for more medical care professionals. By taking these simple and cost-effective measures, those who want to pursue careers as medical professionals in Southwest will be filling a need in a field that is growing. Ben also supports protecting benefits for our miners, many of whom now suffer ailments for their years of hard work.
