HRC Presidents Emeriti Comment on Health Care Legislation
From Monday’s Crimson: an op-ed from two former HRC Presidents.
Against the strong wind of public opinion, Congressional Democrats passed a massive government takeover of health care in America on Sunday. This slap in the American people’s face is all the more egregious because of the opportunity the Democrats had to pass truly landmark, bipartisan legislation under allegedly “post-partisan” leadership from President Obama. Republicans and Democrats alike agree that health care is too expensive, and that, in the absence of reform, budgetary realities of Medicare and Medicaid will force harsh fiscal choices.
