Statement Of Representative On House Passage Of HR 3962

Statement

Location: Washington, D.C.

Today, Representative John Linder (R-GA) released the following statement on the Democrat passage of HR 3962:

"Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Barack Obama pushed through a bill spending $1.45 trillion, creating 111 new Federal departments, commissions, programs, and bureaucracies, raising taxes by $743 billion, cutting Medicare by $426 billion, expanding health care for 2.5 million illegal immigrants, and swelling the ranks of taxpayer-provided Medicaid by 15 million people. Through threat and intimidation, the Speaker and the President forced House Democrats to vote for a massive government take-over of health care."

"Instead of looking to the future and ensuring that all Americans have the opportunity to own and control their own health care, the Democrat-led House of Representatives ignored the voices of the American people and passed PelosiCare. Though she may have won this battle, the war is not over, and I will continue to fight PelosiCare for the rest of the 111th Congress."
