Repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Actby Representative Brian Babin

BABIN. Mr. Speaker, I thank the chairman.
Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of H.R. 596, legislation that I have cosponsored to fully repeal ObamaCare.
My constituents sent me to Washington to repeal this disastrous law, and that is what we are doing today, the number one issue in my district.
As a health care provider myself for 38 years, I have seen firsthand the devastating effects of ObamaCare and how it undermines the doctor- patient relationship.
It is costing us jobs and work hours and has led to millions of Americans losing their health plans that they had and wanted to keep and were promised such. Restoring the patient's right to choose a plan that they want and can afford is just plain common sense.
Our bill does this by repealing ObamaCare and replacing it with free market solutions. We put America on a path toward patient-focused care, rather than government-directed care. The traditional doctor-patient relationship would be restored.
Let's show the American people that we are listening and rid the Nation of this terrible law and replace it with policies that work.
