Pelosi, Governors' Remarks Before Meeting on Health Care
Date:6/24/2009

Rounds. Well, thank you for the opportunity to visit. I don't think there's anybody who doesn't want to make health care better in America. I think the challenge will be how we will do it in such a fashion that it will work. It has to be something that we can afford to do, it has to be something in which the states can continue to experiment and find better ways.

In South Dakota right now we have 91 percent of our people within a plan for how they get their health care. We still have 9 percent of our people that we want to do better with. We look forward to finding ways to make that happen without injuring a process that currently works for the other 91 percent. I know there's going to be a great deal of debate, that's the reason that we're here. I think our goals should be the same, and this is to make health care better in America. How we get there will be the real discussion.

Speaker Pelosi. Well, I think the visits that you are making here in Washington -- you'll be meeting with the President later today, the visit to Capitol Hill, and I know you'll meeting with your own representatives from Congress along the way -- are all very important to us.

Yes, we strive to do this in a bipartisan way; I think that is very important. Yes, we realize that the states have taken the lead on some very good ideas on how we go forward. And we not only want to improve health care in America, we want to make our country healthier -- to focus on prevention and wellness -- and I know that all three of you have had that focus in your states as well, so I look forward to hearing your ideas. The current thinking that you have, your ideas are well known, and I thank you again for the honor of your presence in the Speaker's office.

Q: [Inaudible] Republicans across the line, Governor Douglas?

Governor Douglas. Well, this has got to be a bipartisan approach. Republicans have go
