Hopes for Improvements

State Treasurer and U.S. Senate Candidate Alexi Giannoulias released the following statement regarding passage of health care legislation in the U.S. Senate:

“The U.S. Senate today took an historic step toward reducing costs and covering more Americans with quality health care. This isn’t a perfect bill –I am disappointed that a non-profit plan to compete with insurance companies is not part of this legislation and I oppose taxing employer-provided health care benefits to pay for it — but it does ban insurance companies from denying care based on pre-existing conditions, eliminates caps on benefits, reduces the deficit by nearly $1 trillion over the next two decades, and covers millions of working Americans who can’t afford today’s skyrocketing insurance costs,” said Giannoulias.
