Bono Mack: Americans Deserve Real Health Care Reform, Not Government Takeover

Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (CA-45) today re - emphasized her opposition to a government takeover of health care and urged real reform that meets the needs of all Americans. With thousands of people from across the country joining this call against government-run health care today on the Capitol steps, Bono Mack issued the following statement:

"We need solutions that will fix what is broken, not add more layers of government bureaucracy that will make health care more expensive and less available to Americans," said Bono Mack. "The Speaker's legislation will raise taxes, increase our already massive federal debt, and hurt our seniors, families and small businesses.

"It is clear that the American people do not want a government takeover of health care -- thousands of hardworking Americans are here in DC today to emphasize this point; so why is Congress ramming this flawed legislation down the throats of average citizens, forcing a vote on a 1,990-page bill unveiled just days ago?

"In these tough economic times, we need solutions that will drive down costs and make quality health care more affordable and accessible to all Americans. This bill is the wrong prescription for what ails our health care system. Congress can and must do better to meet the health care needs of the American people."
