(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. TRAFICANT. Madam Speaker, America's the land of the free, but one cannot choose one's doctor. Freedom of speech; but doctors are gagged. Judicial review; HMOs are judge and jury.
Madam Speaker, health care in America has gone from the Constitution to HMOs. Beam me up. It is not managed care any more; it is managed costs. It is time for Congress to vote on behalf of the American people and pass the Patients' Bill of Rights, stone cold simple remedy today.
I yield back more medicine than ever in America and less health care.
