Mr. BROUN of Georgia. I thank the gentleman for yielding.

This bill, as well as the underlying bill is a farce, just two big farces. Let me tell you a couple of things that they won't do and some things that they will do.

The first thing that it will do is it's going to drive millions of people out of work. Also, besides that, it's going to drive many doctors out of business, as Mr. Burton was just talking about. When people have that free health care insurance card issued by the Federal Government in their pocket, it's going to be about as worthless as the Confederate dollar was after the Civil War because you are not going to find any doctors who are going to be willing to take the government insurance card.

So access is going to be worse. It's going to be worse for the people who can least afford it to be, and that's the poor people in this country as well as senior citizens.

We need to repeal this bill. We need to stop this reconciliation process farce tonight. We need to repeal ObamaCare, and we need to replace it with policy that will create more access, create jobs, which will lower the cost of health care and not be a government takeover of the health care system.
