Mr. JOHNSON of Georgia. Thank you, Mr. Ranking Member.

I rise in opposition to the repeal of health reform. Repeal of health care reform would strip 32 million Americans of health insurance, including 139,000 residents of my district. Repeal will allow insurers to discriminate against people with preexisting conditions and reopen the doughnut hole, which would devastate Joseph Williams, a former corrections officer in my district who relies on Medicare for his prescription drugs. I will be voting against repeal, and I urge my colleagues to do the same.
