Rep. Burgess on Health Care Bill: ‘It Is Going To Be a Very Long Process’

‘Today is the next step in what is likely to be a very long process’


BURGESS: “Look, I am a member of the authorizing committee that went through the 28-hour markup a few weeks ago. I thought we had a good product that the committee produced. Remember, too, that this bill was actually passed in December 2015 as a reconciliation bill, passed the House and Senate, was vetoed by President Obama. That, of course, was the base bill after the November 8th election. That was the base bill that we began working on in December of this year. I would just point out, too — you’ve had an election in 2010, one in 2014, one in 2016 where ObamaCare was on the ballot and people spoke and they wanted something done. Today is the next step in what is likely to be a very long process."
