Email #10, Subject: What happened to the GOP 1990s health care plan?

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but since you’ve been in office since the 90s, I assume you voted against the health care program that President Clinton tried to get passed back then. As part of the GOP opposition, you must have also endorsed the health care program Speaker Gingrich presented as an alternative to Clinton’s plan. It included a way to prevent freeloaders from bankrupting health care for everyone else, something we still need. Since you are now seeking to end Obamacare, why don’t you go back to your old 90s plan? Since it was written by Republicans it must be better than the Democrats’ plan. I would love to know more about it. And since you are one of only a handful of GOP Representatives still in office from twenty years ago, you are the ideal person to give Congress and the country a history lesson. Would you please do that? Would you tell the country about the GOP health care plan and how it’s different from Obamacare?
