Clyburn Statement On Senate Passage Of Landmark Health Insurance Reform Legislation

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn today released the following statement following Senate passage of landmark health insurance reform legislation.

"I commend Majority Leader Harry Reid and my colleagues in the Senate for passage of a landmark health insurance reform bill that will provide quality affordable health coverage, security and peace of mind to America's families.

"Both House and Senate bills cut the deficit, bring down rapidly rising health care costs for families and businesses, provide choice, and end discriminatory practices of the insurance industry that deny coverage if you get sick or have a pre-existing condition. I look forward to working with my Senate colleagues and the President on a final bill that meets the core principles of health reform: affordability for the middle class, security for our seniors, responsibility to our children by reducing the deficit, and accountability for the insurance industry."
