Reid: We Are On The Doorstep Of Health Care Reform

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today to address the progress of health care reform efforts in the Senate:

“President Obama and Congressional Democrats made clear starting last year that delivering quality, affordable health care to all Americans would be one of our top and early legislative priorities.  We now stand on the doorstep of that achieving that goal.  For many of us in this body, our work on securing an agreement on health care reform goes back decades.  I want to praise the tireless work of the HELP and Finance Committees for working across the aisle to deliver proposals for the consideration of the full Senate.  I thank the President for his leadership and urge leaders in both parties to continue to work toward an agreement.”
