Senate's First Health Care Vote
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Wednesday following a bipartisan rejection of the Democrat Leadership's attempt to add another quarter trillion dollars to the deficit:
"In the Senate's first vote on health care spending this year, a bipartisan majority rejected the Democrat Leadership's attempt to add another quarter trillion dollars to the national credit card without any plan to pay for it. With a record deficit and a ballooning national debt, the American people are saying enough is enough. Today's vote shows that this message is finally starting to get through to Congress. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come in the health care debate ahead."
