Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
iVoterGuide Note: Pittman, the Alabama state senator from the Eastern Shore of Baldwin County, is also a big proponent of free enterprise solutions to health care, and is wary of any mandates associated with health care policy. He was the only Alabama state senator to oppose the so-called "autism bill," which required that insurance plans cover certain behavioral therapy. "We can sit here and say that we want to repeal Obamacare, but it was about mandates that the insurance companies covered," Pittman said. "You can debate them but they did cause the cost of insurance premiums to skyrocket." Source
