Rep Burgess: Here's what comes next for the Senate health care bill

Congressman Michael Burgess (R-Texas) currently serves as co-chair of the Congressional Health Caucus. The Senate released a discussion draft of their health care bill today, which Burgess said was the first step of many to a return to “more market sensitivity to our health care system.”

He joined Chris Salcedo on “The Chris Salcedo Show” today to discuss this and several other issues. He lamented that six months after receiving a majority in the House and Senate, Republicans still have big ticket pieces of legislation that are bottled up in the legislative process. “And that’s unacceptable,” he said.

After skimming the new draft, Burgess is interested in what happens with the taxes, the mandates, and the Medicaid segments. There will be a 24 hour period for mark-up next week on the floor where any senator can offer an amendment.

He anticipated this will cause some discomfort for those senators who vote against the suggestions of their colleagues in order to serve the people of their states.
