Memorial Day recess talking points

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on May 26, 2009

The Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report reported about the goings-on in the House and Senate right before the Memorial Day recess – talking points were given out for representatives to go back to their constituents, on the Democratic side ensuring them that they were working to improve, not threaten, the current health care system in the United States.

“We cannot delay this discussion any longer…Health care reform is no longer just a moral imperative, it is a fiscal imperative. If we want to create jobs and rebuild our economy, then we must address the crushing cost of health care this year”

In addition to any well-meaning comforting of constituents, there was plenty of partisan finger-pointing (Democrats being urged to refer to Republicans as “defenders of the flaws of the current system” and Republicans being urged to label Democrats as proponents of a “complete government takeover of health care”).
