RNC STATEMENT ON HARRY REID'S GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE EXPERIMENT
WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele
released the following statement today:
"After months working in secret behind closed doors to cobble together his
health care bill, Harry Reid finally unveiled a 2,074-page government-run
monstrosity that would still increase premiums, still shifts costs to
states, still increase taxes by nearly half a trillion dollars and still
cuts Medicare by nearly half a trillion dollars. But wait, there's more.
At a time when our national debt just hit a record $12 trillion, Harry
Reid's bill would cost $2.5 trillion when fully implemented. Oh, they
didn't tell us that. It even uses accounting gimmicks to allow federal
funds to be used for abortions. They didn't tell us that either. This bill
is far from the common-sense incremental reforms the American people want.
The voters spoke loud and clear at the ballot box earlier this month - they
are sick and tired of all the reckless spending and big-government
interference coming out of Washington, DC. Harry Reid's bill is exactly
what the voters don't want, and Senate Democrats who let this bill even come
up for debate will pay a price on Election Day next year."
