Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on Meeting with Vice President-elect Pence
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after Vice President-elect Mike Pence met with the House Republican Conference today:
“Republicans met today with Vice President-elect Pence to discuss our plans to bring relief to families from ObamaCare and to ensure every American has access to quality, affordable health coverage. Republicans are united in this effort and as a physician I’m ready to get to work," said Bucshon.
“In contrast, the Democrats scrambled today at the Capitol with President Obama in desperation to devise a political strategy to somehow convince the American people that ObamaCare is working. A new slogan won’t cover up the reality that the law is crumbling under its own weight and patients want a new direction. I hope the Democrats will ditch these efforts to put the president’s legacy above the well-being of patients and partner with us to deliver real reforms that drive down the cost of healthcare, increase the quality of care, and expand access.”Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. is a physician and Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving his fourth term representing Indiana's 8th Congressional district. The 8th District of Indiana includes all or parts of Clay, Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Martin, Owen, Parke, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Sullivan, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo, and Warrick counties.
