Dem Slams Obamacare: Health Care Law “Wasn’t Fairly Vetted,” Regulations “Way Too Onerous”
Cybercast News Service ^ | March 25, 2013 | Penny Starr

Rep. John Barrows (D-Ga.) said Friday that legislation was necessary to rein in the regulatory power of the Food and Drug Administration over food served from take-out outlets and convenience stores as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

“That’s why it’s essential that we be able to come together in this manner to provide this kind of relief from legislation that wasn’t fairly vetted enough and regulations that are coming down the pike that are way too onerous,” Barrows said at a press conference in support of the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2013. …

Either Rep. Barrows is in a very close race in 2014 and was given special dispensation by the Dems...

Or, he’s toast.

What part of “We have to pass the health care bill to know what’s in it”, did he not understand?

Let's hope the Reps don't mend it. We need to end it. I am afraid that the Reps will try to fix Obamacare. They have already reduced reporting requirements, ended the CLASS portion of Obamacare (Long term care), and other small fixes. Next on the agenda is getting rid of the medical equipment tax,

We need to let Obamacare go into effect as written. The latest coming from the Dem political leadership (Steny Hoyer) is that no legislation is perfect and must be tweaked and modified. I see this as the theme leading into 2014. Specifically, the Dems want to make some "small" fixes to Obamacare in response to public pressure, but those terrible Tea Party Reps won't help them.

If you legislators on Capitol Hill would read the damn bills to find out what is in them BEFORE you pass them, you could avoid these kinds of problems.

The regulations regarding food served from take-out outlets and convenience stores is only a small part of the massive stack of new regulations.

Obamacare will be a legislative and regulatory nightmare for years to come.

For what it's worth, Rep. John Barrows (D-GA) voted "Yea" on H.R. 3590 -- the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Guess he didn't get a chance to read it, huh...???

” - - - come together in this manner to provide this kind of relief from legislation - - - “

Yup, it is called “Regular Order” in the US Congress.

Obama”care” was rammed through by Commie Obama as a Bypass of the Regular Order, on Christmas Eve!

The RATS jammed it down our throats. Now its time to let the country live it for the time being as it will let us keep the house and maybe the senate in’`14.

He voted for Obama, so whatever happens, it’s 1) his fault and 2) what he deserves.

Thanks Olog-hai.
