The Hillís Blog Briefing Room Leading Blue Dog: Covering uninsured not top priority of health reform
Rather makes one wonder what all the push for a public option is, then.Rep. Mike Ross (D-Ark.) said on Wednesday that providing healthcare to uninsured Americans is "not what this healthcare reform debate is about."
In making his comments, Ross, who is the centrist Blue Dogs' health reform point man, questioned one of the primary healthcare goals of the White House and Democratic leaders.
If insuring the uninsured is not the point, if cost containment is the point, then why is there nothing within the variations of HR3200 that confronts the very real economic defects within health care today?
(And what will Queen Nancy do if the rest of the Blue Dogs are this far off the approved script?)
