Rep. Broun tells CNN: ‘I’m a medical doctor’ and Obamacare will ‘destroy everything we know’ | The Raw Story

A Georgia congressman who is running for Senate said on Tuesday that he was fighting to delay, defund and repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law because it would literally “destroy everything we know as a nation.”

In an interview with CNN, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) told host Wolf Blitzer that he supported the government shutdown if it would help put an end to what he called “the flaw of the land.”

“We need to defund it, we need to delay it, we need to put it on the shelf and stop this implementation because it is destroying our economy,” he opined.

When it came to the upcoming fight to raise the nation’s debt ceiling, Paul had a simple condition: amend the U.S. Constitution to require a balanced budget, a process that would take years.

“So, you’re not demanding any concessions on Obamacare in order to raise the debt ceiling?” Blitzer asked.

“Well, Obamacare must go,” Broun replied. “It’s destroying America…. Wolf, I want to get the American people the relief that they need from this out-of-control spending, and I’ll do everything that I possibly can do to do that.”

“And Obamacare is going to destroy everything we know as a nation,” he added. “Wolf, I’m a doctor. I’m a medical doctor!”
