McConnell Statement on Latest Democrat Health Proposal
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Monday regarding importance of getting it right on health care reform:
"While final details of this bill are still unknown, here's what we do know: It will be a thousand-page, trillion-dollar bill that raises premiums, raises taxes and slashes Medicare for our seniors to create new government spending programs. That's not reform. So, wholly aside from the debate over whether the government gets into the insurance business, the core of the proposal is a bill that the American public clearly does not like, and doesn't support."
