Wyoming US Sen. John Barrasso gave a speech on the floor of the Senate, saying that President Obama's new health care law has not created the jobs he promised it would.

Barrasso explains specifically what the law is doing that prohibits job growth.

Barrasso says that all Americans should be granted a waiver from Obama's health care law. He added that he has a bill that Obama can support that will do just that.

Barrasso said that if Obama passes the bill, it “would be one of the best steps that he could take to help America's economy.”

Since October of 2011, the Obama administration has granted more than 1,500 annual benefit limit waivers.

Barrasso's comments were part of his “A Second Opinion” speeches. Along with serving as a senator, he is a practicing physician in Wyoming.
