Hare Praises President Obama's Speech Before The American Medical Association In Chicago
Congressman Phil Hare today released the following statement praising President Obama's speech before the American Medical Association in Chicago.
"President Obama got it right today: health care reform is a necessity, not a luxury. This is the message I've been hearing loud and clear from my constituents over the last several weeks. Health insurance continues to be unaffordable for too many families and businesses. We can and must do better. Although the President did not endorse the idea of a single-payer system, an approach I strongly support, he did outline many of the key principles that must accompany any reform effort: access, affordability, portability, and choice. I look forward to working with him to ensure all Americans have access to affordable, quality health care."
