Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. TIPTON. Madam Speaker, the question before us is: Will we accept what is, or are we willing to commit to build what could be?

America has always been a land of self-determination. Our constitutionally guaranteed rights as individuals, as a people, as a Nation have made us flourish. Innovation, creativity, and freedom are American hallmarks.

I rise in support of H.R. 2. It does not indite intent, but it does address outcome. In fact, the deeper we dig into the health care act, the more we discover that it is stopping job creation, building more government, and placing tax burdens on American families who are already struggling. We can and must do better.

Let us commit ourselves to addressing the basic concerns we hold in common concerning health care--affordability and accessibility. Let us strive to empower our people to make their own choices about the care they receive, empower private sector solutions that will lower costs and increase the quality of care, and eliminate governmental stumbling blocks and not build bigger government.
