Senator Saxby Chambliss' statement

From the Office of Senator Saxby Chambliss:

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., issued the following statement regarding the passage of the Senate health care bill by the U.S. House of Representatives.

"The American people have spoken out against this health care bill and it's unfortunate that the president and Democrats have chosen to ignore their concerns and force passage," said Chambliss. "Cuts to Medicare, tax increases and special deals do not represent meaningful reform. This bill is a political victory that will only make health care more expensive."
