Honorable David J. Weldon, M.D.
Former U.S. Congressman, Republican, Florida 15th District, 1995-2009
Topic: In 2014, the Insurance Commissioner of California willfully violated the Weldon Amendment, which affirms the right of conscience for health care workers, such as doctors and nurses, and health care entities like clinics, medical centers, hospitals and health insurance companies. The Obama administration, using specious Orwellian reasoning affirmed Federal funding for California in direct contradiction to the Federal statute. Can other states now disregard the Weldon amendment? And what impact has this brazen ploy had on the health care industry?
