KENNEDY ON BAUCUS WHITE PAPER
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, today released the following statement regarding Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus's white paper on comprehensive health care reform:
"Senator Baucus's white paper is a major contribution to the debate on health reform. It provides an important analysis of the urgent need for significant improvements in our health care system, and thoughtful recommendations for reform. I look forward to working with Senator Baucus, our colleagues in Congress on both sides of the aisle, and the Obama Administration to see that we at last achieve the goal of quality, affordable health care for all Americans. Senator Baucus's white paper brings us closer to that goal."
