Taylor signs petition to repeal healthcare reform

WASHINGTON — Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) is a cosponsor of HR 4972, the bill to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — the healthcare reform bill.

He signed the discharge petition to bring HR 4972 to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote to repeal the bill that became law March 23.

A discharge petition forces a bill to be brought to the House floor for a vote if 218 members agree to sign the petition. Currently 172 members have signed onto the discharge petition.

Taylor said, “I didn’t vote for it, people don’t want it and the taxpayers cannot afford it.”

    We didnt want or need this trash bill. To bring down health care costs we should address this dum lawsuits that people bring against our doctors or the comercials that the medication companys make that cost so much to make. Why do I need to know about a pill that will help me not go pee in the middle of the night. but the draw backs are that my liver will go bad! Isnt it my doctor there to tell me about these pills not the makers. The other thing is we need to allow the insurance companys to provide coverage reguardless of what state there are base in. The folks in congress have been playing politics for far too long and they have forgotten who they work for… What we need is term limits not life time appointments this way the people in congress will have a clue as to what is needed.
