Repeal of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. GINGREY of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, today, we are once again voting to totally repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare.

Now, the most senior members of the Energy and Commerce Committee from the Democratic side stand up here and say this is the 37th time that we have voted for total repeal. No, it's the third time. We are voting for total repeal for a third time because Republicans and Democrats and 65 percent--young and old--of the people across this country demand total repeal. They know that they don't want the government taking over one-sixth of our economy and Washington bureaucrats imposing a massive tax increase on middle class Americans and small business owners.

As the government becomes more involved in health care, doctors and patients become further removed--more involved, further removed--from their own health care decisions, and this will result in a more expensive and a more dysfunctional system. Patients should have more control of their medical decisions, and reform should be driven at the State level rather than rushing through legislation that we have to read to find out what's in it. Now, Mr. Speaker, small businesswomen and men have to read a stack of rules and regulations 7-feet high to find out that, truly, the devil is in the details.


Mr. GINGREY of Georgia. As both a physician and a taxpayer, fully repealing ObamaCare is my top priority, and I am proud that we will soon take yet another step toward this critically important goal.
