Madam Speaker, I rise in opposition to HR 3200, the so-called healthcare reform bill.
It is clear that this bill will ( raise taxes / kill jobs / kill puppies ). This bill, which the Democrat majority hopes will move us toward ( socialism / fascism / homosexualism ), is just an effort to make the government take over ( your health / your house / your dreams ). The Democratic agenda has failed us thus far. When we look at the record stimulus passed earlier this year, I ask you, ( Where are the jobs? / Where is the money? / Where is the beef? )
What my colleagues on the other side of the aisle need to understand is that Republicans represent ( small businesses / middle-class families / the insurance conglomerates that finance our campaigns ). They say that we have no solution. Our party does have a solution: ( cut taxes / cut taxes and increase spending / cut taxes, increase spending, and blame any problems on the Clinton administration ).
This health care bill will do one thing only, and that is to enlarge our country’s ( debt / bureaucracy / prostate ). Democrats say that universal healthcare will cost one trillion dollars. One trillion! That is enough to buy ( three F-22s / one unnecessary war in the Middle East / every single member of Congress and their staffs ).
My constituents don’t want a government takeover of healthcare. They don’t want us to turn into ( Canada / Europe / Nazi Germany, circa 1939 ). But that’s right around the corner, folks. I urge my colleagues to vote against this bill, because it is ( too much, too soon / too little, too late / too big to fail ).
