“It’s just absolutely stunning, if you like to read, and it is not a very long bill, if you read through the Declaration of intent document that we in the rules Committee today, it is stunning, because everything will be taken over by the Federal government.”

Burgess notes that such a circulation of the system “has never been tried before in this magnitude,” and is likely to have fatal consequences for patients in the United States
“Look, if I a new treatment, I want to offer a patient, I have to do a randomized clinical trial. I don’t have to show it, to kill, to many people, if I bless it. No, the is required. Only by congressional fiat that we want to change the entire health care system in this country,” he said.
The Republicans, says that, rather than trying to radically change the health care, to change the people to celebrate, to work with the existing guidelines.
“Why don’t we go to celebrate stuff that works. Since Donald Trump has been opened, 2.5 million people, not only working, but employer-sponsored insurance that had it. This is a great success in the trump administration. I don’t know why we talk about it,” he said.
