Congressman Parker Griffith again tonight voted against a government take-over of health care by voting against the Senate Amendments to the Health Care Reconciliation bill, H.R. 4872.
"The reconciliation bill did not comeback from the Senate fixed," said Dr. Griffith. "This is still a bad bill that will reduce the quality of health care for American families and expand government bureaucracy. Even though this reconciliation bill did not have as much publicity as last weekend's health care bill, I voted against today's reconciliation bill to remind families in north Alabama that a takeover of health care will not improve our system. I will continue to work to repeal this health care bill."
Five days ago, Dr. Griffith, along with 211 House Members, voted against the government's takeover of health care, H.R. 3590. House Democrats voted to unilaterally pass the sweeping, $1.2 trillion health care takeover, which included funding for elective abortions and $569 billion in tax increases.
