CHILDERS – “While I could not vote for today’s bill …”

Washington, DC – Congressman Travis Childers (MS-01) released the following statement regarding his vote on the House health care reform bill, H.R. 3962:

“Today’s vote represents just one step in a long process. The Senate still has to act on its own legislation and we don’t know what the conference report, the final legislation, will look like after that. While I could not vote for today’s bill, I remain committed to effective, fiscally responsible health care reform that will lower premiums for hard-working Mississippians, ensure coverage for individuals with preexisting conditions, prohibit federal funding for abortion, and provide equal access to care for individuals in rural communities.”

Attached is a list of more than 50 meetings and events which Congressman Childers participated in to prepare for this vote.
