RSC Update: Tuesday, March 30, 2010

From the Chairman

Many on the Left seem to think the public debate over health care should end now that the Democrats’ plan has become law. They could not be more wrong. The need for reforms that put patients in charge is now greater than ever. As we look to the future, members of the RSC will be leading the way with a common sense strategy to put individuals back in control of their health care and protect our economy:

1)     Highlight the Real World Consequences – This law will impact Americans’ access to care and place huge financial burdens on employers. Already, companies like AT&T, Caterpillar, 3M, Verizon, Valero Energy, John Deere, and others are predicting they will be hit with higher taxes and could very likely change or drop some of the health insurance plans they currently offer.

2)     Repeal and Replace to Empower Patients – We will work for a full repeal of ObamaCare and replace it with patient-centered solutions like H.R. 3400, the Empowering Patients First Act.

3)     Support Legal Challenges – There are legitimate constitutional concerns about the individual mandate and other aspects of this law. While working to repeal this takeover of health care, conservatives should also support the efforts of governors, state legislatures and attorneys general who seek to block or overturn it.

4)     Restore the Consent of the Governed – No governing majority can last in our Republic if it lacks the consent of the governed. Democrats have flagrantly ignored the will of the American people, and conservatives stand ready to restore your voice to its rightful place in our system of government.

The Democrats’ health care takeover is unconstitutional, bad for patients, and bad for the economy. Let’s fight to repeal it and start over with patient-centered reforms.

Sincerely,

Congressman Tom Price

Chairman, Republican Study Committee

I think that articles that seek to reveal the flaws in the recently passed bill that purports to be “health-Care” with no semblence of anything that resembles health care in the bill, but is simply a transferance of money from one class of people to another. One longs for a plan that would provide “Fair-Care”

Conservatives should learn to weave into these articles, ideas of how a truly responsible and well-thought-through plan would function, be substainalble, and continue to be substainable and debt free.

The Democrats of the left remain convinced that the people are indifferent to how much money is squeezed out of hard working successful people. They either have never considered, nor have forgotten that these people also dream of one day being productive and successful. It is then, that they realize that they too, will be the “givers” and no longer entitled to be “the takers.”

The Republicans in the House were the first to put forward a good plan that would take care of many of the faults in the current system and yet no cost the people in taxes. Both bills were put on the shelf and never allowed out of Committee for the House members to see and vote on it. Of course the committtees are controlled by the Democrats! BB
