- For Immediate Release -

WASHINGTON, DC-Today the Congressional Hispanic Conference made the following statement regarding the Democratic takeover of Healthcare:

“The Members of this Conference strongly support healthcare reform and believe that every American deserves access to top quality, affordable healthcare, but reform should not come at the expense of our seniors, families and future generations.  This bill will make massive cuts to Medicare, fatally damaging programs that help minorities, in order to help pay for a government takeover of healthcare.  At a time of sustained high unemployment, this bill will continue to damage our fragile economy by imposing massive tax increases on the American people, hurting small businesses and eliminating more jobs.  We will not support a bill that is being forced down America’s throat and that will take America down the path to bankruptcy.”
