WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl (Ariz.) delivered remarks at today’s meeting of the Senate Finance Committee.  The following are his prepared remarks:

 

“All of us here support healthcare reform. But the bill we have before us is not one I can support.

 

“Americans have real concerns, and we should listen to what they’re saying. Americans are concerned about the cost of their healthcare premiums, yet, according to the Congressional Budget Office, new government-forced mandates in this bill will raise premiums.
