Burgess Soundbite #1: Pay A Fine To Keep Your Health Care


"Some of the things like health savings accounts and health reimbursement accounts may not even be qualified coverage under some of the Democratic plans so that a person would have to pay a fine in order to keep their insurance. Kind of makes a mockery out of the slogan, 'If you like what you have you can keep it.'


Burgess Soundbite #2: Government Takeover Of Health Care


"I sympathize with people that look at congress this year what has already been done. We took over your bank, we took over your car manufacture, we closed your car dealer, and now we want in your doctor's office."


Burgess Soundbite #3: Bipartisanship Is Not Just A Slogan


"Honestly, they have the numbers where they don't need to include Republicans. An issue this large, however, really bipartisanship is not just a slogan if you want it to endure. If you want it to really deliver on the promise to the American people, you do need to include both sides."
