“Mr. Speaker, the President says, incorrectly, that if you like your health care coverage you can keep it under his plan. This has been refuted by many sources including the White House which has admitted that the President’s rhetoric should not be taken ‘literally.’ Unfortunately, with mandates and new taxes on small businesses included in the Democrat bill, the question should be: if you like your job, can you keep it?

“With estimates ranging from 1.6 million to 4.7 million jobs lost under the Democrat scheme, it is clear this plan will destroy jobs and weaken our economy. You cannot make health care more affordable for Americans if you destroy jobs.

“Republicans want to give the American people a leg up through tax relief and resources for small businesses to provide quality health care coverage. We have solutions that do not rely on tax hikes, mandates, and big government bureaucrats which lead to waiting lists and rationing.

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