Health Care Reform

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. COBLE. Madam Speaker, this past weekend I visited with four of my six counties in North Carolina--Moore, Guilford, Davidson, and Rowan counties--hundreds of people, and without exception, no one spoke in favor of this bill. Increased taxes, they said to me, increased costs. The heavy-handed way in which it's been administered, as if to say, By golly, this is the bill you're going to get whether you like it or not.

Madam Speaker, this proposal is a train wreck waiting to occur. We need no train wrecks.

I will admit that some attention needs to be directed to the delivery of health care in this Nation, but this is not the appropriate vehicle to deliver it. We need to scrap this bill and start anew with a sound proposal.
