Pelosi House Leaders, Committee Chairs Remarks at Press Conference on America's Affordable Health Choices Act
Date:7/17/2009

efore the break, and we continue to be on that schedule.

Any comments from our Chairmen on that subject?

Q: [Inaudible. Question about letter from freshman Democrats expressing concerns about impact on small businesses.]

Speaker Pelosi. I haven't seen the letter. I haven't seen the letter yet. But you know what? I have so many letters on my desk, so many. This is the giant kaleidoscope -- you turn the dial and you get a new set of letters. I do meet regularly with the freshmen and I know of their concerns about small business, and some of those changes have already been made in the Ways and Means Committee in terms of lifting the limit and the rest. But again, we'll see what people are putting forth to stipulate to a set of facts what really is the case and then go forward. I have full confidence -- I have no doubt that we will come to agreement on all these issues.

And this legislation -- for example, that Congressional district I mentioned where over $100 million went to the public hospital, and over 123,000 more people would be insured, 23,000 small businesses would be given tax credits to provide health insurance. The public has to know what the upside of all of this is in a quantified way. What it translates to them in numbers.

It's transformational, it's momentous -- it's important and relevant to the lives of the American people. And while we get everybody's letter and take into consideration their suggestions, if they take it further in the direction of lower costs, better quality and enhanced choices for the American people in a fiscally sound way, we are very receptive to what we feel they're comfortable about that.

Q: [Inaudible. Question about Freshmen going to the White House today.]

Speaker Pelosi. Yes, I know that. Very happy about that. . .
