AFP: Senate Finance Committee OK’s Health Care Take-Over, 14 – 9

AFP Oregon

The Senate Finance Committee passed out the Baucus health care reform bill today by a vote of 14 – 9.  The bill received one Republican vote, that of Olympia Snowe of Maine.

Thank you to all who reached – or tried to reach – Senator Wyden on this vote.  Although Sen. Wyden voted against the interests of Oregonians in this matter, it is only by being involved and vocal that we will convince elected officials that government control of the private economy is not something the American people support.

This piece of legislation is far from complete.  It is likely to become much worse – with even higher taxes, greater penalties and less freedom of choice – during additional Senate action and when it has to be combined with the House bill.

Please stay engaged on this issue and watch for notice of additional opportunities to be involved!
