A Physician's View of Obamacare

Please watch this video of Dr. Tom Price, a Representative from Georgia, talking about the health care proposal now before the house. Like most people, he does not maintain that our current health care system is perfect, but that the remedy championed by Obama is much worse than the problem it supposedly solves.

In an earlier radio interview, Dr. Price questioned why Obama voted against all bills aimed at reform in health care while he was still a member of the Senate. If concern for patients were his true motivation, it does seem that Obama would have championed any reform possible before insisting on a complete redesign of the entire system. It also seems that he would be open to a lengthy debate in order to refine his basic ideas instead of rushing it through Congress without input from all sides.
