Hutchison: Vote against government health care takeover

Released by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's Office:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tuesday, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison delivered remarks on the floor of the U.S. Senate urging her colleagues to listen to their constituents, stop playing political games, and vote against a government takeover of Americans' health care.

"Members of Congress, listen to your constituents and let's start again and do this right," Senator Hutchison said. "That's what the American people are asking for and, Mr. President, it's the least we owe them not to pass a bill that's going to destroy one sixth of the American economy and take away the choices that Medicare patients have, cut the services in Medicare and tax every employer and every family, whether they have not enough health insurance, no health insurance, or too much health insurance. You're going to be taxed no matter which way you go. That is no health reform. That is a government take-over of a system that needs improvement but not killing."
