Health Care

Floor Speech

Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to this latest attempt at a government takeover of health care that has been proposed by Speaker Pelosi.

Now, this 1,990-page bill that has just been filed a few days ago by the Speaker adds up to over a trillion dollars of new spending. If you break this spending down, how much does this really cost? $530 million per page, $530 million per page.

What's in this bill? Sure enough, they still have components that allow a health care czar to take away your health care plan even if you like it. They still have over $700 billion in new taxes on the backs of small businesses and families. Yes, as senior citizens know well, they still have over $500 billion in cuts to Medicare.

Now, with all of these horrible provisions, this has nothing to do with health care reform. It is clearly an attempt at a government takeover of health care. In fact, this bill at $530 million per page has been called the worst bill ever by The Wall Street Journal. Let's do real reform.
