    Healthcare:

    Izzo is opposed to President Obama’s national healthcare program and is instead proposing that in order to bring down costs, insurance companies should be allowed to compete across state lines. She also thinks that people should have portability with their healthcare, if they change jobs they should be able to take their healthcare from their previous job with them.
