LARSON HAILS PASSAGE OF HISTORIC HEALTH CARE BILL
Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement after the passage of health reform legislation.
"Today, this Congress accomplished something that was almost 100 years in the making. When the President signs this legislation into law, the American people will see clearly whose side this Democratic Caucus is on. We are standing up to health insurance company abuses and decades of discrimination and mistreatment. We have lowered the cost of health insurance. We have lowered the budget deficit. And, we have improved the quality of health care for all Americans.
"I am so proud to be part of this historic moment along the lines of the passage of Social Security and Medicare."
