|Representative Paul C. Broun was elected in July of 2007 to serve the Tenth District of Georgia. Since his arrival in Congress he has been appointed to positions on the House Homeland Security Committee, the House Committee on Natural Resources, and currently serves as Chairman of the Investigations and Oversight Subcommittee for the House Science and Technology Committee. Dr. Broun graduated from the University of Georgia in 1967 with a B.S. in Chemistry. In 1971, he received his Medical Doctor degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. Paul served in the military as a jet engine mechanic in the U. S. Marine Corps Reserves and later received a commission as a medical officer in the U. S. Navy. For most of his career, Dr. Broun has practiced general medicine and, in 2002, he went out on his own, establishing a unique practice of full-time house calls. He has enjoyed the freedom of practicing medicine without bureaucratic encumbrances and his patients appreciated the convenience of being seen at home or at work. As the 112th Congress moves forward, look for Dr. Broun to lead the charge to remove burdensome and unconstitutional health care mandates and replace them with commonsense solutions that preserve the doctor/patient relationship without government interference.
