|U.S. House, California, District 25|
Rogers is currently the Medical Director at the Amputation Prevention Center at Sherman Oaks Hospital. He has published over 100 scientific papers, articles and book chapters on health policy and medicine.
Rogers's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Grow the Economy, Shrink the Deficit
- Excerpt: "Irresponsible spending by politicians has created our fiscal crisis. Congressional inaction and grandstanding creates uncertainty that makes markets cautious. Investors don’t trust that Washington will be able to resolve our fiscal crisis in a manner that will prevent a worsening recession."
- Invest in America
- Excerpt: "Reducing the deficit is important, but it shouldn’t be done at the expense of growth in America. In order to grow, we need to invest in our own country’s infrastructure. The World Economic Forum ranked US infrastructure at 24th out of 142 nations, a downgrade from 10th five years ago."
- Save Medicare from Destruction
- Excerpt: "Medicare was started in 1965 because seniors were not able to obtain affordable coverage in the private market. Seniors, and the disabled who qualify for Medicare, are generally sicker and higher risk than the younger population who are able to obtain insurance coverage through employers. Insurance companies, which typically use risk to calculate premiums, had priced seniors out of the market."
- Improve Healthcare
- Excerpt: "As a doctor, I help my patients navigate through our complex health system to get the best care possible. But in most cases, patients encounter difficulty from lack of understanding or find certain health products and services unavailable or uncovered."
- End the Wars, Bring Our Troops Home
- Excerpt: "As Americans, we enjoy a strong and secure nation. Our men and women in uniform are charged with protecting us and do so in difficult and dangerous conditions."
Rogers ran in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent California's 25th District. He sought a rematch after being defeated by incumbent Buck McKeon in 2012 but was defeated in the blanket primary on June 3, 2014.

After being defeated in the primary, Rogers endorsed Stephen Knight over Tony Strickland. Rogers called Knight "an honest man with integrity." He continued, "To the contrary, Tony Strickland is a politician in search of a district. Recommending a Republican for Congress may not sit well with some in my party, but I didn’t create the rules and I care too much about our district to let it fall to a dishonest carpetbagger who is interested only in himself, like Tony Strickland."
Rogers ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent California's 25th District. He and incumbent Howard McKeon (R) advanced past the blanket primary on June 5, 2012, defeating Dante Acosta (R) and Cathie Wright (R). They faced off in the November 6, 2012, general election and McKeon won.
