I would like to introduce you to Boss Hogg from Hazzard County, Georgia. He used his position of authority to terrorize Georgia – with the help of henchmen like Roscoe P. Coltrane – in the 1970’s television show The Dukes of Hazzard.
Mr. Speaker, today life imitates art. We have another Boss in our midst – ObamaCare. The only healthcare citizens of this country can access are those approved by the boss. If you like what you currently have, you can’t keep it.
The boss has henchmen who help fund his tyranny. They include the biggest permanent tax increase on Americans – borne in large part by middle class families and the employers who give them jobs. A $500 billion dollar cut to Medicare, all while the program goes bankrupt. And finally, new rules that allow the Boss to dictate how doctors practice medicine. No longer will my colleagues in the medical profession be able to put the needs of their patient’s first.
Mr. Speaker, our forefathers rejected tyranny and so should we. Support H.R. 6079, a bill that would repeal Obamacare. Let’s get rid of the boss once and for all. I yield back.
