Reid: Time For Republicans To Stop Trying To Take Benefits Away From Americans, Focus On Helping Democrats Create Jobs

Washington, D.C.—Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today regarding a recent federal district court ruling about health care reform law:

“This lawsuit is nothing more than an attempt by those who want to raise taxes on small businesses, increase prescription prices for seniors and allow insurance companies to once again deny sick children medical care. Health care reform is the law of the land and, now that Americans see its benefits, a majority of them oppose Republicans’ dangerous plans to repeal a law that put patients in control of their own health care.

“Rather than focusing obsessively on the past and pushing a plan that will add $1 trillion to the deficit, Republicans should join Democrats as we work to create jobs and strengthen the middle class.”
