Representative Flynn Announces Plan to Protect Doctors From Federal Mandate
From the office of Representative Dan Flynn (Van-R):
This morning Representative Dan Flynn (Van-R) announced he has begun working on proposed legislation that would directly address the Administration's Executive Action Item,#16, 'clarifying the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.' Representative Flynn is very concerned about mandates coming from the Federal Government in efforts to require doctors to make certain inquiries.
"It seems everywhere we look we are finding more and more attempts by the federal government and our current administration to inflict a totalitarian type state on our country," reacted Representative Flynn Wednesday evening. "I am outraged that a patient doctor relationship has become anything more than a relationship based on the management and continuation of individual health and well-being. The fact that this administration is trying to circumvent above and beyond their jurisdiction, into the private homes and property of Americans and their families, by encouraging doctors to inquire into the patients living arrangements is disdainful and should not be tolerated. Doctors know how and what to discuss with their patients. My proposed legislation would work to not only preserve our individual liberties by restricting unnecessary meddling by federal officials, but it would more importantly also protect the integrity and professionalism of good doctors."
Representative Flynn confirmed he will be working and talking with the Texas Medical Association and has already spoken with various small, independent practices located in House District 2. "My hope is for my friends in the medical industry to show me how I can help protect them from this invasive federal mandate," stated Representative Flynn this morning.
