Wilson Highlights Concerns with Government Takeover of Health Care System

WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) delivered the following remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives today highlighting concerns with the Democrat proposal to enact a government takeover of our nation’s health care system.

“Madame Speaker, Republicans are committed to health care reform, and we have and will continue to offer positive solutions to achieve accessible, affordable health care for all Americans.

“Unfortunately, as Democrats sat behind closed doors to develop their plan, it appears they have failed to answer some troubling concerns about what seems quite likely to be an unwarranted government takeover of the health care system.

“So in the spirit of honest debate, I ask my Democrat colleagues how they expect to pay for a government insurance plan without raising taxes or driving up the national debt? How will a government-run health plan not lead to the same rationing of care that we have seen in other countries? How will a government-run health plan protect the doctor-patient relationship when Washington will now be empowered to pick and choose what procedures and treatments are, in their opinion, cost-beneficial?

“Before we turn congressional offices into waiting rooms, I hope my Democrat colleagues will answer these questions.

“In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September 11th in the Global War on Terrorism.”
