Pence: "Democrats' Reconciliation Bill Doesn't Fix Anything"

Washington, DC - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, delivered the following remarks today on the House floor:

Transcript: "Well, here we go again. Last Sunday, defying the will of a majority of the American people, House Democrats rammed their health care bill through the Congress chock full of big government spending, mandates, and backroom deals.
Now, we're being asked to fix the bill by passing some sort of reconciliation measure.

"But Madam Speaker, the bill before us tonight doesn't fix anything. It doesn't fix the fact this is a government take-over of health care. It's going to mandate that every American buy health insurance whether they want it, or need it, or not. It doesn't fix the fact that it includes about $600 billion in job killing tax increases in the worst economy in thirty years. It doesn't fix the fact that this bill provides public funding for elective abortion for the first time in American history.

"Speaker, the American people know there is no fix for Obamacare. We need to repeal this law and start over. If we repeal Obamacare, we can start over with common sense solutions that will lower costs and create jobs. If we repeal Obamacare, we can enact medical malpractice reform and use the savings to cover Americans with preexisting conditions and promote pro-life protections in the law. If we repeal Obamacare, we can reform health care in this country without putting our nation on a pathway to socialized medicine.

"I urge my colleagues in both parties. Heed the voice of the American people. Reject this attempt to fix a government take-over of health care. Work with us to repeal and start over on health care reform that reflects the common sense and the common values of the American people." End Transcript

Every election year, we always hear this is the biggest election in our lifetime, but this time, those words are true. We need to send reinforcements to our Republicans in Congress so they can defeat these bills the Socialist Democrats are ramming through Congress. Republicans are fighting with one hand tied behind their back. It is up to all of us to see they get the reinforcements by working, donating, and voting for Republicans across America to Take our Country Back from the Socialist who have taken over the White House and Leadership in Congress. To them the Constitution is just another piece of paper to be stepped on like the Rules of Congress in order to push their Socialist agenda.

Join us in helping defeat the Democrats on November 2, 2010!
