During Louisiana State Senator Bill Cassidy’s visit to the KEEL studios this week, he took aim at Obamacare, arguing that it doesn’t work for the people.

“The president’s health care law awards big, it takes power from the patient and gives it to the insurance companies, gives it to the hospital, gives it to the government,” said Cassidy.

The Congressman is running against incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and is using his stance against President Obama’s health care reform law to garner conservatives and independents alike.

Cassidy touched on his previous experience working as a physician in his argument against Obamacare, which he believes gives all the power to Big Healthcare.

“You’re going to end up if you reward big, with more big,” he argued. “You’re going to have one or two insurance companies, one or two big hospital systems, and they’re going to duke it out, and that’s just inevitable the way Obamacare is written. And I say that just as a guy who’s been in the trenches for 20 years taking care of uninsured patients. This law takes power away from us, and gives it to them.”
