Obamacare needs to be scrapped and replaced with a balanced approach.

  The Obama/Palosi/Reid partisan piece of legislation brings a sixth of the U.S. economy under federal control. This unconstitutional blatantly Socialist attempt of large government takeover is going to collapse under its own weight. Health insurance premiums rose in 2011 to more than $15,000 per family.  The Congressional Budget Office acknowledges that Obamacare actually increases the national deficit by $540 billion over the next 10 years.

  Americans without health insurance has increased since Mr. Obama took office and since he signed Obamacare into law. Health care costs are going up because of Obamacare, and more adults are uninsured since it began.

Most of the American people oppose the government plan to take over healthcare. It costs too much; it borrows too much; it taxes too much; it's inefficient; and it gives government bureaucrats the control of our personal medical decisions. But aside from the obvious, it also goes far beyond the restraints set forth in the Constitution. The Constitution sets limits on what dictates of pain the federal government is allowed to inflict on the rest of us. The people decide what is best for themselves and our country, not the government. When our forefathers set forth to create a free and democratic republic, they wanted to make sure that they created checks and balances within our government to prevent one party or one body of government from having absolute power over the people. Our leaders would be wise to remember this.

"A trove of just-released internal Obama Administration documents reveals that the President's top health care advisors were fully aware that a key component of ObamaCare presented a massive taxpayer bailout risk, but they chose to suppress the information in their frenzy to push the controversial legislation through CongressThe documents, quoted extensively in a report released yesterday by the House Energy & Commerce Committee, reveal a shocking level of cynicism by the President's team -- cynicism that will cost Americans hundreds of billions unless the unpopular ObamaCare law is repealed. " quote from a Dean Clancy article. 

"The leadership in both chambers of Congress penned their bills under lock and key and far from the eye of not only the public, but the rank and file members of their own party. And after a public scolding for those that disagreed and promises that our path forward would be different, the President rolled out his bill written again by a secret select few." Rep. Ted Poe
