WASHINGTON – On the one-year anniversary of one of the most contentious congressional votes in recent history, Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, a practicing medical doctor, offers a scathing indictment of the way the “Obamacare” bill was pushed through despite widespread public opposition and offers a detailed alternative plan for free-market health-care reform.
“Doctor in the House: A Physician-Turned-Congressman Offers His Prescription for Scrapping Obamacare … And Saving America’s Medical System,” published by WND Books, debuts in bookstores throughout the nation in two weeks, a year to the day after the House vote that riveted the nation’s attention. But it is available now through the WND Superstore autographed by the author, who is leading the legislative fight against the crowning achievement of Barack Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Dr. Burgess, a sitting member of the House who is working closely with House leadership on overturning Obamacare, tells the inside story of how “the fix was in” on the legislation from the start and how “even the very worst aspects” of the plan to “fundamentally transform” health care got jammed through Congress.
He applies his three decades of experience practicing medicine to a diagnosis of the country’s true ailments and offers a prescription for making the nation’s health-care system more compassionate, more efficient and less expensive for all.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who wrote the foreword for “Doctor in the House,” had this to say about title: “This book is a remarkable essay on life, medicine, health care, politics and Congress. It is so much more interesting and so much richer in human experience than most health policy books that I recommend it to every American.”
The book is also endorsed by another medical doctor in the House – Rep. Ron Paul.
