Tiberi Statement Regarding Speaker Pelosi's Healthcare Bill
U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding Speaker Nancy Pelosi's 1,990 page healthcare bill:
"I strongly oppose Speaker Pelosi's bill. I am for healthcare reform, but not this massive bill that does little to fix our current healthcare problems. Speaker Pelosi's bill raises taxes, raises premiums for people that already have insurance, expands Medicaid without fixing its funding problems, and massively cuts Medicare by hundreds of billions of dollars. I support Healthcare reform that actually lowers healthcare costs and creates true competition to expand access to quality affordable healthcare. That's true healthcare reform, unlike Speaker Pelosi, I don't want to just rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic; I want to fix our broken system."
