WASHINGTON – A Texas Republican in Congress told an audience at the Heritage Foundation today that Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation that essentially nationalized much of the health-care decision-making going forward, is nothing more or less than an “assault” on health care.

The law, signed by the president one year ago this week, is “a major assault on our profession,” U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, a physician, said.

He was part of a panel assembled at the Washington-based Heritage Foundation seminar on Obamacare. Members of the panel warned of the law’s unhealthy consequences, called for repeal and proposed true health-care reform.

Robert Moffit, senior fellow of the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Policy Innovation, led the seminar, “Why Doctors Need Full Repeal of Obamacare: Medical Professionals Diagnose the Law’s Side Effects,” featuring Burgess, Dr. Martha Boone of Atlanta, and Gurjeet Guram, member of Harvard Medical School Class of 2014.

Moffit told WND that the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Action is designed to lead the U.S. into complete government control over health care and wipe out health insurance companies.
