Watch Rep. Mike Pence remarks in response to the passing of the Democrats' heatlh care bill. An excerpt of the remarks is below the video:
"This is truly a remarkable moment in the life of this nation. Some say we’re making history. I say we’re breaking history. We’re breaking with our finest traditions: limited government, personal responsibility, and the consent of the governed.
"The first principle of public service in a free society is humility. The arrogance we’ve witnessed in this institution is breathtaking. Only in Washington, D.C. could you say you’re going to spend a trillion dollars and save the taxpayers money.
"Only in Washington, D.C. could you exchange the pro-life protections enshrined in the law for thirty years for a piece of paper signed by the most pro-abortion president in American history.
"Despite overwhelming opposition, today this administration and this Congress is poised to ignore the majority of the American people. Let me say, Madam Speaker, this is not the president’s house. This is not the Democrats’ house. This is the peoples’ house, and the American people don’t want a government takeover of health care."
