Providing for Consideration of H.R. 1549, Helping Sick Americans Now Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. ROTHFUS. I rise today in support of the rule, H.R. 1549, the Helping Sick Americans Now Act, and the Pitts amendment.

President Obama's health care law is a train wreck. We learn more every day about its failures. H.R. 1549 addresses a problem with the law's provision for those with preexisting conditions. The bill takes millions of dollars that the administration intends to spend on advertising its failed law and instead helps some of the sickest Americans get health insurance. Not only that, the bill will also end the ObamaCare slush fund and reduce the deficit.

H.R. 1549 is a win on all fronts. We should applaud Chairman Joe Pitts and Congresswoman Ann Wagner for bringing this commonsense solution forward.

I urge my colleagues to support the rule and the bill.
