Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today in response to the today’s report from the CBO about the Finance Committee bill that is still being discussed:
"Today’s encouraging news from the Congressional Budget Office is another positive step toward delivering fiscally responsible health insurance reform. As we continue to make progress on this critical legislation, we are another step closer to producing a bill that lowers costs, preserves choice and improves the overall quality of health care. I know that the Finance Committee will continue to work in a bipartisan fashion. I look forward to receiving the Finance bill and working with the Finance and HELP Committees and the Obama administration to draft a single bill that can get the needed 60 votes."
