Pelosi Statement on House Committee Chairmen's Draft Health Care Reform Proposal
Date:6/19/2009

WASHINGTON, June 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi today issued the following statement after Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles B. Rangel, Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman and Chairman Emeritus John Dingell, and Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller released the draft legislation on health care reform to reduce costs, offer a greater choice of doctors and plans, and guarantee affordable, quality health care for all Americans:

"Today's joint announcement by the House chairmen is historic and a critical step forward in meeting our commitment to the American people: to deliver an American solution for quality affordable health care.

"Our economic recovery and nation's fiscal future hinge on building on what works in our health care system and fixing what's broken: lowering costs to families and businesses, preserving choice of doctors and plans, ensuring stability and peace of mind that Americans will always get the care they need, and improving the quality of health care.

"As Congress prepares to act in the coming weeks, the American people, small businesses, and all those who have a stake in this debate will continue to have an opportunity to offer input and shape this legislation.

"Americans need to know that President Obama's promise is our promise too: if you like your health plan and your doctor - you can keep them. It's that simple. But we will fix what's not working - reducing costs, improving quality, and covering more Americans. And we will make preventive care affordable for all, to make us a healthier America.

"Congress will work with the President to ensure that this is the year we finally put the American people and their doctors back in charge - with an affordable and fiscally sound system."
