Reid Statement On Bipartisan Health Care Meeting

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after meeting with Republican Senators Charles Grassley, Mike Enzi, Orrin Hatch and Olympia Snowe:
“I had a positive meeting today with four Republican Senators about the road ahead for health care reform.  Democrats have said from the beginning of this Congress and throughout this debate that with the health of our economy and our citizens at stake, our strong preference is to pass a bipartisan bill that lowers crushing health care costs for the middle class.  I appreciate some of our Republican colleagues’ demonstrated commitment to that goal, and I look forward to more Republicans joining us at the negotiating table.”
