                         THE PATIENT OPTION ACT

  (Mr. BROUN of Georgia asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. BROUN of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, now more than ever, Americans are 
feeling the pain from ObamaCare. This law is hurting Americans with 
higher premiums and cancelation notices. If it is left in place, our 
country will suffer under the new wave of spending that it will create.
  This destroyer must be stopped.
  Just last week, the House passed a symbolic bill that merely nibbled 
at the edges of the problems caused by ObamaCare, but you cannot fix a 
law that will cripple our economy, increase our Nation's debt, and 
limit health care options for millions of Americans. I was one of only 
four Republicans to oppose this bill, because we can't fix the 
President's broken promises in ObamaCare. Instead, we must repeal 
ObamaCare for good.
  I have introduced legislation, the Patient OPTION Act, that would do 
just that. Congress must stop wasting time to pass bills that keep 
ObamaCare in place. We must repeal and replace this disaster 
immediately. The Patient OPTION Act is the solution.
