Barrett: Dem Health Care Bill Will Jeopardize American Jobs

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Tonight, Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC-03) voted against the Senate-passed health care reform bill and its reconciliation package. After the vote, Barrett made the following remarks:

"Just because this legislation has passed does not mean that the fight is over. I will do everything in my power to defend South Carolina's 10th amendment rights against these excessive federal government mandates.

I voted against the Democrat's health care bill because my state's economy is already on life support. We cannot afford to put any more South Carolina jobs in jeopardy--which is exactly what will happen under this government takeover of health care."
