On what is perhaps the defining political issue of our time, Commissioner Doak has emerged as a national leader in the fight against the government takeover of healthcare provision and insurance known as Obamacare.
He has been a strong voice against the federal government's intrusion in this critical area of our economy. Doak has spoken passionately against the tax increases, federal mandates and abuse of religious freedoms found in the president's health-care proposals. He has strongly opposed the "crowding-out" of private sector jobs that will occur thanks to aspects of the President's plan, like the creation of so-called "healthcare navigators."
Commissioner Doak believes that nationalizing our health care system will simultaneously increase the cost of medical care and will cause medical services to become scarcer, instead of becoming more available. It will impose a bureaucracy in place of the private health care system as we know it.
