Hispanic Alliance Urges Congress to Work Through Recess on Health
Date:7/31/2009

"With one-third of Hispanic American adults uninsured, Congress must get this right"

WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With one-third of Hispanic American adults uninsured, the Hispanic Alliance for Prosperity Institute today urged Congress to work through its planned August recess to streamline America's health care system.

"For Hispanic American adults without health coverage, this is no time for a vacation," said HAP Institute co-chair Jose Nino. "Congress must get this right, not in a rush."

"As a threshold matter, Congress needs to determine exactly how many Americans are truly without access to care: our efforts should be focused on those citizens who earn too much for existing health programs but too little to afford insurance -- not those who have put off purchasing care or who for whatever reasons have failed to sign up for existing programs."

"For Democrats and Republicans to work together in the best interests of the American people, they need to develop a health care plan that will reduce costs and help cut the deficit, not increase them. Let's increase patient access to Health Savings Accounts, reduce frivolous lawsuits and defensive medicine that is both expensive and unnecessary, cut waste, and modernize to medical record-keeping to save lives. Take your vacation after the work is done, not before."

The Hispanic Alliance seeks bipartisan health care reforms that will:

  • Ensure that all Americans have access to quality health care at a price they can afford with tax credits to help the working poor and small employers afford health insurance
  • Preserve Americans' ability to select the doctors, specialists and hospitals of our choice
  • Increase consumers' access to innovations like Health Savings Accounts
  • Give consumers, not govern
