Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act

Floor Speech

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BROOKS. Mr. Speaker, Americans enjoy the best health care in the world. Every year, profit motive and American ingenuity create new and better diagnostic tools and treatments. Yes, there are ways to improve America's health care, but President Obama's socialized medicine is not it. For example, we can cut health care costs by implementing tort reform, by forcing health care competition, and by removing illegal aliens from America who get free health care at our cost.

Socialized medicine strangles creativity and obstructs life-saving medical advances. It is care rationed by bureaucrats with mind-numbing regulations. Simply stated, socialized medicine pulls all America down to health care mediocrity.

Lives and freedom are at stake. We must repeal this job-killing government takeover of America's health care. Today, I will proudly vote to do exactly that.
