On Capitol Hill, Republicans argue for a step-by-step approach to health care reform to reduce health care costs and avoid the excesses of a 2000-page, trillion-dollar bill that would increase premiums, increase the debt, cut Medicare, and put government in control of health care decisions.
Senators Alexander, Gregg, and McCain raise concerns with the latest version of the Democrats health care bill that raises premiums, raises taxes and cuts Medicare for millions of American families. Sen. Alexander declared, "The era of the 1000-page bill Is over; the era of the 2000 page bill has arrived."
