Congressman Larson hails passage of health care bill

Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) has this to say about the passage of the health care bill.

"Today, this Congress accomplished something that was almost 100 years in the making. When the President signs this legislation into law, the American people will see clearly whose side this Democratic Caucus is on. We are standing up to health insurance company abuses and decades of discrimination and mistreatment. We have lowered the cost of health insurance. We have lowered the budget deficit. And we have improved the quality of health care for all Americans. I am so proud to be part of this historic moment along the lines of the passage of Social Security and Medicare."

So a bill that is 2700 pages long, has no public option, required an executive order banning federal funding for abortions (which are constitutionally guaranteed health procedures), left out same-sex couple parity, created a second class citizenry through additions to Medicaid (which no doctors in Connecticut take), cut Medicare (which now fewer doctors in CT will take) is a good thing? On what planet?

You sold out women, gay people, workers, the poor--who is left? We needed single payer health care that had little bureaucracy so that when patients were ill they did not have to fill out form after form for reimbursement, and we got an insurance bailout bill.

Shame on you!
