Mr. BACA. The House is back in session this week, and at the top of the agenda is health care. I am here to make sure that the 217,000 uninsured in my district have affordable options to purchase health care coverage, as well as those across America.
Families across America will benefit greatly from the bill's extensive improvement to our health care system. We will finally end discrimination by insurance companies based on preexisting conditions. We will bring peace of mind to every parent out there who constantly worries about paying for high medical bills.
America is the land of freedom and opportunity. America must have the freedom and opportunity to purchase their own health insurance that is affordable for everyone. Doing nothing is unacceptable. We need to drive down the health costs and demand greater accountability for health insurance companies.
I urge my colleagues to support the health care reform and put the interest of our families first.
