My health care.
That was presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney campaigning in Milwaukee back in April repeating -- pledge that he makes and almost every campaign appearance.
To repeal president Obama's 2008 and health care law.
And it's a great selling point for Romney the law remains very unpopular -- god.
What goes in its place if it comes out.
How does Romney make an argument to the electorate about that.
Well somebody who's going to have some saying that it seems like it's still -- -- He is a congressman from the great state of Georgia and he joins us from the fox news bureau in Atlanta congressman how we do -- Hey Chris good I'm glad to be -- -- this morning.
Okay so how -- things and the ATL it's raining out here and people are grumpy of people happy down in Atlanta it's been a dreary rainy weekend we need the rain and so people in Atlanta art and George are very happy indeed.
How okay -- think that's right.

Okay congressman here's the question.
What are you going to tell Mitt Romney to offer as a policy replacement for the president's health care law.
Well I was I was very proud when when governor Romney ran the first time and I supported him early on to.
Have an opportunity -- -- -- them warm warm with his staff about health care and it.
And then his opposition at that particular -- happen.
Thought to -- big omnibus saw Obama care that we finally got doll in March or pointy end.
All president -- -- -- -- the next president of the 45 president.
Mitt Romney always opposed to that -- he's opposed to a male and I don't recommend -- -- Paula did he come out with some all omnibus -- 2500 page bill to replace some of the American people -- said they didn't they asked.
They want the federal government take over health care lock stock and barrel I think they would much prefer.
That what we do -- Republicans and he does as president.
Become -- individuals small bills.
Fifty point -- or thirty page bills on specific issues like.
Our medical liability reform like person help cure our insurance across state lines for individuals or not.
Just association's equals tax treatment in regard to.
-- deductibility for for health care -- it -- individual.
The states have -- -- -- have risk pools so these really count things that I would recommend and obviously we in the house and senate.
All the leadership and the RNC -- -- coordinate.
Very closely with our nominee Mitt Romney.
Now congressman -- governor Romney is not just listening to because he likes.
Or because he thinks you're -- good guy but you're a physician and you -- the head you're the co chairman of the doctors caucus.
They -- inside the congress and one thing that caught my.
There is actually bipartisan health legislation that may move through this congress is this true.
Well there there has been awesome all a number of ideas that have been submitted there's a congresswoman from Pennsylvania.
I've yet to have an opportunity to talk with her about our particular piece of legislation obviously I am willing -- as a position there -- no.
Or Republican and and democratic patients.
Politically than I have played today -- land that would one party or another but what -- health care they don't really care at all they wants to deal of work together and I want to do that.
Well but -- the house GOP doctors -- doses are Republican caucus they're 21 of -- mostly in -- we've got.
Nurse practitioners registered nurses did this.
So anybody who has been in the -- outer space before coming to congress indeed there are -- few of us and it's not all attorneys.
We have some good ideas -- part good Health Care Reform and we will bring that all waited hopefully the governor.
And indeed the next president of United States would give us an opportunity to work with his team so -- -- all on the same page congress and we've got a minute left here tell us about the what's going -- -- this FDA reauthorization bill.
-- I'm so glad to have that opportunity.
You know back in 1992.
Something call -- do for the prescription drug user fee act.
It's basically good though the drug companies -- pay a fee.
Ought to make an application for a new drug and once.
Drugs are on the -- at all and -- medical devices they pay an annual fee to help the FDA.
To be able to how are enough people.
All a brilliant people in fact to do your approval process and -- -- speedy and timely manner so we get these drugs to market.
But people all such as cancer patients that have the best -- possible care available to them so this is a reauthorization.
Of that program.
Going back twenty years ago.

Although the don't know -- market is is very small and very limited so we give them more or exclusivity.
For their product once -- -- to market.
