Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
"For more than a year, numerous opportunities existed to pass common sense, bipartisan reforms to make health care more affordable and accessible for all Americans.
Instead, Democratic leaders in Washington pushed through a massive, $1.2 trillion, government-run entitlement program that will raise taxes and cut Medicare but won't actually lower health care costs. For these and other reasons, I did not support this health care proposal."
"Common Sense, Fiscally Responsible Health Care," Democrat & Chronicle, Mar. 27, 2010
