“If a government-run health plan is good enough for the American people, it is good enough for Congress.”
Now you may be wondering what I meant when I spoke those words on the House floor last week.
Many people feel that President Obama is trying to enact a government takeover of our health care system and that this plan will limit choices for patients and doctors, will increase costs, and decrease the quality of medicine.
During consideration of the over 1,000 page bill in the Education and Labor Committee, I successfully got an amendment passed that provides for senior administration officials and Members of Congress who vote in favor of government-run health care to enroll in that plan themselves. Members of Congress shouldn’t have access to one standard of health care, while Americans are subjected to a lesser form of health care and loss of freedom. Americans must monitor that this amendment is kept in the bill.
I will continue to be a strong voice for health care reform because we cannot let our health care system fall by the wayside. It’s one of the most important issues impacting all American families.
So what do you think? Is the government- run health care system good enough for you? Leave your comment below!
I am fighting as hard as I can for a conservative plan to give Americans quality and affordable health care and to promote real health reforms. If you missed out on my video about health reform, check it out by clicking here.
