The Fate of the Affordable Care Act Awaits the Supreme Court

Floor Speech

Mr. BURGESS. Mr. Speaker, here we are, 32 hours away from the Supreme Court's decision on the Affordable Care Act. No one has a clear idea of what their decision will be. We've worked hard in preparing for any decision that might come from the Supreme Court, and their announcement will certainly be watched by all.

As the chairman of the Congressional Health Caucus, I've held a series of policy forums to discuss the future of health care in this country. Today we heard from Dr. John Goodman, president and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas. Dr. Goodman has put a considerable amount of time into how to craft health care policy that will be beneficial to all Americans without the burdensome law that we currently have.

Additionally, doctors in Dallas convened with four Members of Congress earlier this month. They produced a set of principles that I will provide for the Record. I encourage people to spend some time and look at those, and understand that we have to have health care in this country that's patient-centered, doctor-led, and most of all, we keep the government out of the way.
