Congressman Bruce Poliquin

Representing the 2nd District of Maine

Health Care

The Administration’s one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare is not working for Maine families and small business. Many folks are experiencing higher health premiums, narrower networks and are having to find new doctors due to ObamaCare.

As your Representative, Congressman Poliquin will continue to listen to people of the Second District and fix this flawed law by repealing the Medical Device Tax and the 30 Hour Workweek Employer Mandate that are crippling our small businesses. He will work tirelessly for a better solution in order to help families in the Second District afford quality healthcare while helping our small businesses grow.
