Shea-Porter Statement on President's Health Care Proposal

Washington Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement after President Obama released his health care proposal:

“With more than 140,000 uninsured Granite Staters, and the recent news about astronomical rate increases for those with insurance, it is obvious that the status quo is not working.  We must lower health care costs for middle class workers and families, expand and improve coverage to those who are underinsured or uninsured, ban discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, and close the Medicare Part D Donut Hole for seniors.  I will review the President’s plan over the next several days, and I look forward to Thursday’s discussion.”
