Today, Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC-03) issued the following statement regarding the Democrat health care bill:
"South Carolina's economy is already in intensive care and this health care bill will effectively put job creation on life support in our state. Businesses will be forced to layoff employees to pay the increased taxes. Individuals will have less to spend as a result of increased health care costs. Simply put, this health care bill is a prescription for unprecedented unemployment."
