Health Care Vote Shows Who Sides With Working Families vs. Insurance Companies

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On the heels of an historic late night vote in the House of Representatives for a good, balanced health care reform bill, the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO released its scoring of how our state's U.S. representatives voted on HR 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act.

The legislation, which passed Saturday evening by a vote of 220 to 215, takes America another step closer to bringing security and stability to our nation's health care system. Working families would get much needed relief from skyrocketing health care prices by being able to choose between a public option and private for-profit insurance.
