Democrat Go-It-Alone Approach Undermines Health Care Reform Efforts

WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) delivered the following remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives today highlighting how the House Democrat leadership’s partisan approach to health care reform has produced a poor product and ignored quality reforms proposed by Republican members.

“Mr. Speaker, Republicans agree we need to reform the health care system. Yet the Democrat leadership hides behind closed doors. They’ve chosen to go it alone, and as a result, they have a scheme of proposals that adds to the deficit, spends over $1 trillion, enacts a government takeover of health care, and has garnered bipartisan opposition.

“Democrats should sit down at the table with Republicans and work on a bipartisan plan of reform. Republicans have commonsense solutions that will help Americans afford insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions. We want to provide small businesses the resources and freedom to offer and keep insurance for their employees. House Republicans and the American people do not believe we need to let big government takeover our health care, ration the taxpayer subsidized care, and raise taxes on small businesses that will – according to the National Federation of Independent Businesses – cost 1.6 million jobs in addition to the 2.6 million jobs lost since January.

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