Rep. Paul Broun, M.D. (GA) published a post on RedState today in light of President Obama's renewed efforts to sell ObamaCare this week. As one of our many GOP doctors, Congressman Broun has valuable insight to share on the subject. Please see the following excerpt:
Americans are disappointed that Obamacare will increase health care spending, increase taxes on small businesses, kill jobs, and eliminate Medicare Advantage coverage for millions of senior citizens. Throughout the health care debate, Americans across the nation held shared goals to increase accessibility and affordability. Rather than throw money at the problem, we need to implement reforms that truly lower costs without placing a financial burden on future generations.
Americans want access to their doctors and treatments with less interference from insurance companies, special interests and, of course, Washington bureaucrats. They want the doctor-patient relationship protected. And for those uninsured or with pre-existing conditions, compassionate calls prevail for an affordable approach to help those who truly need coverage.
