Bosworth: Law intrudes between patient, doctor

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls physician running for U.S. Senate in South Dakota says patients and business owners have great distrust in government intrusion related to the nation's new health care law.

Annette Bosworth says she wants to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law and replace it with a more affordable patient-centered, market-based system.

She says the distance between the patient and the doctor continues to be filled with more rules and regulations, and that is leading to distrust.

The 42-year-old Bosworth is one of five Republicans seeking the party's nomination for the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson.

Bosworth says she wants to curtail the government's out-of-control spending and balance the federal budget. She also says she wants to eliminate unnecessary and overly burdensome federal regulations.
