Senators Baucus and Kennedy To Obama: We Need Health Care Reform in 2009!

Posted in Affordability, Health Reform Policy Proposals by raisingwomensvoices on February 6, 2009

As the numbers of uninsured rise, the cost of health care grows and access remains limited, Senators call for urgent action on health care reform this year.

Although the health reform effort no longer has Tom Daschle, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee Chairman Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) have conveyed to President Obama that they remain committed to the cause. Both Senators noted that it a ‘moral duty’ to provide all Americans with health care and contain the escalating costs of that care. Baucus and Kennedy are pushing for health care reform in 2009, while others believe that the likelihood of such reform may not occur until 2010 or later.
