Congressman Mo Brooks

Representing the 5th District of Alabama

Healthcare

In 2015, Congressman Brooks was honored with the Healthcare Leadership Council’s “Champion of Healthcare Innovation” award, recognizing his ongoing support of patient-centered medical progress. In January of this year, for the first time, Congress passed a broad repeal of Obamacare and sent it to the President’s desk.  Although the measure was vetoed by the President and Congress fell short of the two-thirds majority necessary to override the veto, Congressman Brooks remains committed to ending the harm caused by this disastrous law and will continue working to repeal Obamacare and replace it with measures that empower patients, families, and doctors.
