Washington, DC - Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement today after House Democrats unveiled their latest plan for a government takeover of health care that will raise taxes, increase our national debt, and put government bureaucrats between patients and their doctors:
“After weeks of closed-door meetings, House Democrats unveiled their health care plan that contains everything that we feared it would. This plan follows months of secret negotiations and backroom deals, and flies in the face of rising opposition by my constituents. Their idea for reform includes a government takeover of health care that will raise costs, add to our national debt, and hurt seniors, small businesses and families.
“Instead of government-run health care, I support keeping what works, fixing what doesn’t, and bringing down costs for all Americans. I will continue to fight on behalf of responsible health care solutions that Texans can support.”
