Frank Pallone on the public heath care option
We're working hard in our drive to "Make Health Care Work For New Jersey." Last Thursday, I was in Trenton with my good friend, AFL-CIO President Charlie Wowkanech, where we heard from working families confronted with America's broken health care system. Their stories really hammered home how, now more than ever, we need comprehensive health reform.
Pallone is chair of the House Health subcommittee. He owes us an explanation as to why he won't even schedule a hearing on HR 676.
In any case, our current priority is that Congress pass no plan that prohibits the states from enacting their own single payer plans.
