Board of Unelected, Unaccountable Bureaucrats Empowered Under ObamaCare
Everyone should have the freedom to make their own health care decisions. ObamaCare takes that away.
This Friday marks the two-year anniversary since this devastating government takeover of health care became law. Americans voiced their opposition to ObamaCare from coast to coast on election night in 2010, but President Obama and Washington Democrats refused to listen.
Our first act of Congress last year was to repeal ObamaCare. While the repeal passed convincingly in the House of Representatives, our efforts to rid the country of this historic over-reach were met with resistance by Harry Reid in the Senate.
Later this week, the House will vote to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a 15-person board of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats empowered under ObamaCare to gut Medicare. The IPAB has drawn bipartisan opposition because it threatens to reduce seniors’ access to treatments and services in Medicare. The legislation I sponsor will restore decision-making power to patients and doctors and is another essential step toward protecting Americans from PPACA’s consequences. This legislation should receive bipartisan support in the House; it is incumbent upon Harry Reid to listen to the will of the American people, not the White House, and bring our repeal of IPAB up for a vote.
Two years hasn’t changed what we already knew about the President’s disastrous takeover of health care: ObamaCare is unconstitutional. Our country is founded on freedom and liberty. Americans should be allowed the freedom to make their own decisions and exercise their First Amendment rights while saving trillions of dollars in taxes and debt.
