Congressional Republicans on Healthcare

As the debate over healthcare heats up in the House of Representatives here are what a couple of our Republican representatives have had to say about it recently.

Congressman Rob Wittman (R-VA 1) urges that all sides be heard in this debate. So far the Democrats have regularly kept Republicans out of the formulation of key legislation. Something this important needs to have all voices included.

Representative Paul Broun (R-GA 10) made the point that the public option will kill people. While many are blasting this as a radical statement, sadly it is true. When government decides who gets certain procedures and who doesn't, they are in effect handing death sentences to certain people. When the government is running healthcare why should they make sure that the old or mentally retarded get the procedures? They are just a drag on society, aren't they?

If you oppose government run health care, please let your representative know immediately.
