One of my local Congresspeople just came out against the current Senate health care bill:
Supporters of the weak Senate bill say “just pass it — any bill is better than no bill.”
I strongly disagree — a conference report is unlikely to sufficiently bridge the gap between these two very different bills.
It’s time that we draw the line on this weak bill and ask the Senate to go back to the drawing board. The American people deserve at least that.
This is Louise Slaughter, chair of the Rules Committee, which makes her the number 5 or 6 person in the House.
