U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill made the following statement on the address from President of the United States Barack Obama to a joint session of Congress, which includes both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, on health insurance reform.
After hosting town halls throughout Missouri, I think the President did a good job correcting all the misinformation that has been spread. Now with the stakes made clear, it's time to work on reasonable health insurance reform that will bring down the cost of health care, improve the way care is provided, and do it in a way that doesn't saddle our grandchildren with our debt.
He did a great job of explaining that the price of doing nothing is much too steep and those who are blocking health care reform are engaged in very risky behavior.
