(Denton Record-Chronicle) U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Lewisville, told constituents Thursday that health care reform, as it is currently written, won’t work and its problems must be dealt with regardless of who is elected in November.
Burgess addressed about 200 people during a joint breakfast meeting of the Denton, Flower Mound, Highland Village and Lewisville chambers of commerce as part of a full schedule of appearances in District 26 this week.

Burgess, a physician, serves on the Congressional Health Care Caucus and has written a book, Doctor in the House, (2011, WND Books) about the problems he sees with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. He told the crowd of business leaders that the future effect of the individual mandate to buy health insurance — upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this summer — remains unclear.
