AARP Disappointed in Senate's Inability to Pass Health Care Reform
Date:1/28/2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP CEO Bill Novelli made the following statement about today's vote against the health care reform bill, AB1X 1 (Nunez & Perata) by the California State Senate Committee on Health:

"Today, the California State Senate failed to seize an opportunity to fix their broken health care system. Unfortunately, this will mean that the status quo - which includes millions of uninsured and underinsured Californians and vastly inefficient health care - will continue. The California State Senate Health Committee had a chance to pass ABX1 1 and guarantee that every person could buy a health insurance policy, take steps to contain health care costs, and provide needed help to those who can't afford an insurance plan on their own.

"The bill would have been a giant step forward to provide health and financial security, not just for AARP's 3.3 million California members, but for the millions of Californians without any health insurance. Equally important, comprehensive health care reform in America's most populous state could have shown the way to cover the 47 million uninsured in this country.

"AARP has no plans to give up, however. We applaud the efforts of the Governor and leaders in the California legislature for coming together in an attempt to break the gridlock and put their state on track for comprehensive health care reform. We look forward to continuing to work with them along with other leaders in the legislature who are interested in putting us back on track toward making California a model of health care reform for a nation desperately seeking solutions."
