Reps. Burgess and Tiberi Introduce Bill to Repeal Obamacare’s Individual Mandate
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, and Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), chairman of the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, introduced legislation that would repeal Obamacare’s individual health insurance mandate. “Obamacare’s individual mandate fundamentally alters the relationship between the government and the governed, severely limiting individual freedom,” said Congressman Burgess. “Since its conception, the individual mandate has been a direct attack on our personal liberty. This bill will provide the American people immediate relief from this overstep.” “We need to put patients and families, not the federal government, in charge of their own health care,” said Congressman Tiberi. “However, the individual mandate is forcing Americans to purchase plans they don’t want, don’t need, and can’t afford to use. This legislation would provide relief to Americans who are trapped
Burgess Statement on House Passage of Harvey Funding
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, today released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 502, Making Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief, which will provide supplemental funding for victims of Hurricane Harvey. “I am saddened by the loss of life and damage sustained as a result of Hurricane Harvey, and I am concerned for the wellbeing of all our neighbors who have been affected by the storm. This major hurricane and subsequent flooding caused significant damage to southeast Texas and parts of Louisiana. While some of the losses will be covered by insurance, this initial supplemental emergency funding will pay for rescue efforts and the first steps of the recovery process. While we must help our neighbors in need, we also must remain good stewards of Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars. Congress must ensure these appropriations are used only for what
Reps. Burgess and Johnson Statement on the Frisco Postal Service
Washington, D.C. — Representatives Michael C. Burgess (TX-26) and Sam Johnson (TX- 3) released the following statement on concerns about constituent service at the Frisco Post Office. “One of the most basic constitutionally-mandated responsibilities of the federal government is to deliver the mail, in rain or shine. The United States Postal Service has a rich legacy of customer service, and any exception is simply unacceptable. We have heard concerns from a number of Frisco residents about incidents at the Frisco Post Office that failed to meet expectations. Our constituents rightfully expect prompt and satisfactory mail delivery. To that end, we will continue to work with the USPS and our federal partners to ensure this problem is resolved.” ###
Burgess Statement on Inclusion of a NASPER Funding Amendment in the FY18 Appropriations Process
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after the acceptance of his NASPER Funding Amendment to H.R. 3354. “Last night I offered an amendment to provide funding to the National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting (NASPER) program. NASPER supports the utilization of prescription drug monitoring programs, which help coordinate prescribing practices between providers and pharmacists, so that prescription opioids can remain solely in the hands of the intended patient. Up until this point, NASPER has not been funded by Appropriators, and as a result, our country has been unable to utilize this life-saving tool. Congress must prioritize programs like NASPER that are preventive and can ensure that errant prescribers and bad actors do not fall through the cracks. If we want to end this epidemic, we must finally commit resources to programs that will promote prev
