“The America’s Affordable Health Choice Act of 2009, H.R. 3200, was introduced on Tuesday, July 14, and is currently under review in the committees of jurisdiction where I will continue to monitor and evaluate the bill as it moves through the legislative process. I am concerned about the growing costs of insurance premiums for my constituents, the high rates of uninsured in South Texas, and our local medical professionals having the resources necessary to care for our community.
“Implementing health reform is vital and long overdue to control the growing cost of health care. By focusing on what works and fixing what is broken, this plan will offer affordable quality health care for Americans, while reducing the burden of ballooning health care costs on American families, businesses and our fiscal future.
