GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT COME BETWEEN DOCTOR AND PATIENT -- (House of Representatives - July 28, 2009)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LEWIS of California. Mr. Speaker, excellent health care begins with a great personal relationship between a physician and his or her patient. Government should not attempt to get between them. America has a health care delivery system second to none. Problems such as portability and covering preexisting conditions can be underwritten actuarially without throwing out a system that works for the vast percentage of Americans.

Every American family knows excellent care does involve some costs. While we pay our doctors fairly for their service, government should not get in the way.
