“I am disappointed that Democrats have chosen to ignore Americans’ wishes and instead will move ahead with including a government-run option, also known as a public plan option, in the Senate bill.  I strongly oppose a government takeover of our healthcare system in America and will continue to fight against Democrats’ attempts to include it in the bill,” Ensign said.
