Dave Camp, JD Biography

Title:
Former US Representative (R-MI)
Position:
Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“Throughout the debate on how to reform our nation’s health care system, the American people made it clear that they did not want the tentacles of the federal government reaching into their lives and controlling their personal health care decisions. I couldn’t agree more, yet that is exactly what will happen under the Democrats’ health care law – federal bureaucrats will be making your health care choices for you and the IRS will be enforcing them…

Simply put, the Democrats’ decision to move forward with a government takeover of our health care system will slash Medicare benefits and jeopardize seniors’ care, increase taxes, hurt small businesses and threatens the country’s economic recovery.”
