BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. HAYWORTH. I rise today in strong support of this legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

As a physician with 16 years of practice experience, I can assure you that the Affordable Care Act will, paradoxically, deprive Americans of care. It enshrines a third-party payment system that adds to costs; then, in the name of controlling costs, transfers power from consumers to the government to make crucial decisions that belong in the hands of patients and their doctors. It neglects to deal effectively with reforms in medical liability that are desperately needed to reduce the unconscionable cost of defensive medicine.

Our vote to repeal is not merely symbolic. It represents the true will of the American public, and it will pave the way to reform our health care in a way that will allow our citizens to have the good, cost-effective health care and affordable, portable health insurance they need, while maintaining the quality, choice, and innovation that represents the best of American medicine.
