From Congressman Paul Broun:
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons Endorses Broun’s Patient OPTION Act
The U.S. Senate Campaign of Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. released the following statement after the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) endorsed H.R. 2900, Congressman Paul Broun’s Patient OPTION Act. H.R. 2900 fully repeals and replaces ObamaCare with market-based, patient-centered solutions. AAPS is a non-partisan professional association of physicians that has been dedicated to preserving the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship and the practice of private medicine since 1943.
“While President Obama and the Democrats rammed ObamaCare through Congress by means of deception and lies, it was falsely claimed that Republicans weren’t offering positive solutions. In fact, as a medical doctor, and constitutional conservative, I authored and submitted the best plan for health care reform, before ObamaCare was ever passed into law. In this Congress, it’s H.R. 2900, the Patient OPTION Act,” said Dr. Paul Broun. “First and foremost, the Patient OPTION Act will repeal and replace ObamaCare. It will lower the cost of healthcare for all Americans, including those with pre-existing conditions. In just 77 pages my plan completely removes the federal government from the doctor-patient relationship and puts patients, not the government or insurance companies, back in charge of their healthcare planning and decision-making. The Patient OPTION Act is the free-market based, patient-first plan that will make health insurance less expensive, provide access to quality care for all Americans, and save Medicare from going broke. It is the true solution that Americans need and deserve.”
“At a time when the American medical system is facing its destruction at the hands of ObamaCare, AAPS commends Dr. Paul Broun for his advocacy on behalf of patients and doctors,” said Executive Director of AAPS, Dr. Jane Orient. “AAPS members believe that harmful laws cannot be fixed by adding new regulatory burdens. True reform starts with repealing laws and correcting errors, restoring the freedom, under constitutionally limited government, that made America great. That is why we have endorsed Dr. Paul Broun’s H.R. 2900, the Patient OPTION Act. No other bill takes as bold of steps as H.R. 2900 does to begin rolling back the many decades of failed policies that have increasingly subjugated patient care to the interest of third parties and thwarted free market forces from providing a wealth of low cost, high-quality medical care. AAPS looks forward to supporting Dr. Broun’s continued efforts to empower patients and their physicians.”
