Chairman Strawn Issues Statement Following Partisan Vote on Health Care Experiment

Des Moines - Matt Strawn, Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa, issued the following statement this morning after the U. S. Senate approved a health care bill along partisan lines:

“Today’s vote should be a major disappointment for all of us who want to see affordable health care reform. After months of bipartisan work, Democrats pushed Republicans like Senator Chuck Grassley aside and rammed through a partisan bill that does not accomplish what Americans want. Instead of lowering health care costs, this bill will result in increased taxes, higher premiums and cuts to Medicare."
