"Rep. Michael Burgess Considers Short-Term Moratorium On Implementing Health Reform"

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) — who is heading up the effort to impeach President Obama — “floated the idea of enacting a short-term moratorium on implementation of the health law in a call with fellow House Republicans on Tuesday. Burgess made the comments while talking about a package of things they can go to help spur job growth.” Meanwhile, some states are actually seeing job growth as a result of the Affordable Care Act. In Colorado, 15 community health centers “launched a joint campaign Wednesday to add 5,000 more jobs by 2014, with leaders saying the employment increase will be needed when 540,000 more state residents are expected to be insured upon implementation of the federal health care reform law.”
