Jeb Bush: Reform FDA

Bush thinks regulatory barriers are hindering health innovation.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has direct experience in the medical device industry, having served on the board of CorMatrix Cardiovascular Inc. (Roswell, GA) until 2014.

His position on the ACA remains clear: "As president of the United States, I would make fixing our broken healthcare system one of my top priorities. I will work with Congress to repeal and replace this flawed law with conservative reforms that empower consumers with more choices and control over their healthcare decisions."

Bush's healthcare plan includes promotion of HSAs and tax credits to help people buy their own health insurance, as well as empowering states to do more.

Expect reforms at FDA, too, under a new Bush presidency. Bush's campaign, among other things, says the government should "modernize the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory morass and increase funding and accountability at the National Institutes of Health" to promote innovation. Bush also wants a "comprehensive review of regulatory barriers to health innovation."
