Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the one year anniversary of ObamaCare:

“One year ago today, President Obama signed ObamaCare into law. This health care takeover is the pinnacle of the false 'government knows best' thinking that currently reigns in Washington. According to the latest polls, the majority of Americans oppose this health care overhaul. Not to mention, two federal judges have found the individual mandate unconstitutional.”

“This bill tells Americans that they and their doctors cannot be trusted to make their own health care decisions. It tells them that health care selections should be left up to big brother’s government control.  Liberty, the founding principle of this nation, is confiscated from the hands of Americans. Though there are flaws in our system, we have the best health care in the world.  Our system simply needs reform, not destruction and government takeover.”

Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. He also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.
