Quote of the Day

"Recently, I voted against moving ahead on a health care reform proposal. This legislation, drafted behind closed doors with only Democrats involved, is a massive government takeover that will drive up the cost of health insurance and medical care. The legislation passed on a strictly partisan vote of 60 to 39. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced that the Senate will begin full debate on the measure following the Thanksgiving state work period."
-- Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) in his December E-Newsletter released today. If the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was drafted behind closed doors, why then did we have to wait so long for the Senate Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions Committee and the Senate Finance Committee to pound out language in a bill, opening the floor to each member of each committee including Mr. Crapo for their comments, input and amendments?
