Smith: Dems' Health Care Scheme Is A Betrayal Of Public Trust


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) issued the following statement today regarding the anticipated health care vote this weekend in Washington, D.C.

"The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has determined that the Democrats' health care overhaul will raise insurance premiums by 10-13%, increase taxes, and reduce benefits for seniors. It is a betrayal of the public's trust for Democrats to force their health care scheme through Congress when a majority of the American people are opposed.

"For Democrats to pass their health care bill in this manner is a corruption of the legislative process. If a new health care system is worthy of being enacted, it is worthy of being debated and voted on in an honest and straightforward way. Anything less is a stain on Congress and diminishes our great country."
