GOP Doctors Caucus Co-Chairs Congressman Phil Gingrey (GA-11) and Congressman Tim Murphy (PA-18) today announced the launch of the group's official website to promote solutions that lower costs and improve access to quality healthcare in the United States.
"As physicians, the 14 Members of the GOP Doctors caucus know firsthand what needs to be done to save our nations' health care system, which starts by repealing and replacing Obamacare," said Congressman Gingrey. "Our new website offers the opportunity for concerned citizens across the country to learn what the doctors in Congress are doing to protect their rights as patients. We hope it serves as a one-stop-shop for Republican ideas on healthcare reform in Congress, and we will continue to work to advance health care solutions that are in the best interests of patients and doctors across the country."
"Members of the Doctors Caucus offer a unique perspective having diagnosed and treated patients," said Congressman Murphy. "We know what works and what does not work in our country's healthcare system. With more than 300 years of combined experience, Caucus members offer reforms based on personal experiences at private practices, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. Such reforms include: how to eliminate the $800 billion to $1 trillion wasted each year in the healthcare system, the use of information technology to improve patient safety, and ways to eliminate healthcare acquired infections. The new website provides a central resource for the public and other members of Congress to learn about these and other ideas, as the Caucus continues to push for meaningful reforms."
