Doug Hoffman's response to the passage of the Health Care Bill
(WKTV) - Doug Hoffman issued the following statement Sunday night in response to the passage of the health care bill. Hoffman is running for the 23rd congressional seat in New York, currently held by Bill Owens, who voted yes in Sunday's vote.
Hoffman said, "Today, by his vote on healthcare, Bill Owens clearly became a liberal Democratic. He proved his allegiance to Nancy Pelosi by supporting legislation that will increase taxes for individuals and small businesses grow the deficit and bring us a step closer to socialized medicine."
He added, "All this, while ignoring free market solutions that will cut the cost of healthcare like Tort reform and dropping interstate barriers on insurance purchases. Bill Owens' vote was wrong for New York and wrong for America."
