BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. HILL. Thank you, Mr. Chairman, for yielding.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 596 which repeals the
President's flawed health care law in its entirety and provides the
Congress with a clean slate to implement the real, patient-centered
health care reform that this Nation needs and deserves.

The majority of Americans are opposed to ObamaCare and its harmful
intended or unintended side effects which have increased costs,
decreased health care access, and lost jobs, work hours, and wages for
many of our hardworking families.

This is an opportunity to recognize the flaws of mandates and a top-
down approach to health care and allows us to finally consider ideas
that will result in a health care system that empowers and encourages
individuals to take control of and responsibility for their health care
through the use of tools like health savings accounts and incentives
that reward healthy behaviors.

We need targeted, transparent, well thought out reforms that
acknowledge the complexity of our health care system, and with the
right kind of reforms, we can get the right kind of health care that is
affordable and accessible.
