Local officials share opinions on healthcare bill

Local News

This week has been full of controversy on Capitol Hill regarding the healthcare bill. Local officials share their thoughts…

Republican Congressman, Mike Kelly, says there’s a lot of confusion surrounding the Healthcare Act.  Senator Bob Casey does not support the latest version of the bill.  “What we need is folks to be able to have coverage and treatment to deal with a very difficult challenge in their lives,” says Casey.  “20 million people have coverage; they’re better off with that coverage.”

Representative Mike Kelly says, “With seeing what’s going on in the Senate right now, and quite honestly, the Senate has to do its work and…  they have to make a decision on what they’re going to bring forward.”

The Senate GOP Leadership hopes to present its latest version of healthcare reform for a vote next week.
