Sen. Alexander joins former governors on Senate floor to discuss "historic mistake" health care law

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today joined Senators Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) on the Senate floor to discuss the cost to states of the new health-care law. "During the debate, I suggested to our colleagues on the other side of the aisle who were supporting the health care law—which I thought was an historic mistake because it expanded a health care delivery system that we already know is too expensive instead of taking steps to reduce it—that they ought to be sentenced to go home and run for governor if they vote for it and see if they can implement it over an eight-year period of time."
