Robert Hurt

Robert HurtAdvisory BoardSee More

Former Congressman Hurt earned his BA at Hampden-Sydney College and his JD from Mississippi College School of Law. He practiced law in Chatham, Virginia and represented that region in the Virginia House of Delegates as well as the Senate of Virginia. He served three terms as the U.S. representative for the fifth Congressional District of Virginia in the U.S. House of Representatives. He currently serves Liberty University as the Vice President of the Center for Law and Government.

Mr. Hurt strongly believes that much of the huge U.S. deficit is largely due to what is spent on healthcare in this country. He advocates that the U.S. Congress must get its financial house in order for progress to be made in this critical segment of national healthcare policy.

He brings to the Advisory Board a strong contact base with business CEOs of Virginia companies. He is disappointed in feeling that consumers, government, and business leaders have only recently developed a modest interest in reducing healthcare spending. He is convinced that incentives must be developed to deliver and pay for excellent healthcare that are aligned between patients and providers, and not insurance/TPA interests, that he describes as the most powerful lobby in Washington.
