It is Time to Repeal and Replace Obamacareby Representative Kevin Yoder
Posted on 2016-01-06
YODER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. YODER. Mr. Speaker, in 2010, Congress silenced the voices of a
majority of hardworking Americans and ran roughshod over the House
minority and jammed a bill through Congress that would put a wet
blanket of mandates, regulations, taxes, and penalties on patients,
doctors, hospitals, and small businesses, driving up the cost of
insurance and health care for most Americans. Longer lines, less
access, less innovation, and higher costs have been the hallmark of
this bloated bureaucratic nightmare.
Today the House will give voice to those who had this law and its expense thrust upon them. It is time to repeal and replace ObamaCare and move forward in a bipartisan fashion, passing legislation that will put patients back in control of their healthcare decisions, focus on competition and quality of care, reform our tort litigation system, and invest in innovation and research at the NIH, curing diseases, and reducing healthcare costs.
The House will also defund organizations that engage in the horrific and sad process of dissecting and harvesting aborted baby organs and reinvest that money in organizations that are truly focused on women's health care.
Mr. Speaker, by placing this bill on the President's desk, we have given voice to the defenseless, and we have focused on a better future of health care for every American.
