El Senado y el futuro del cuidado de salud

Joseph Molieri/Pan para el Mundo

Washington, D.C. – La siguiente declaración la ofrece el reverendo David Beckmann, presidente de Pan para el Mundo:

“Le damos gracias a Dios por este triunfo. El Senado se ha opuesto a profundos recortes a Medicaid y a quitarle a decenas de millones de personas el seguro médico. Cada una de las propuestas de ley sobre la salud que consideró el Senado hubiera aumentado el hambre, la pobreza y la enfermedad en nuestro país.

“Lo que dijo John McCain al regresar de su cirugía indica el camino a seguir – discusión y mutuo acuerdo bipartidistas. Es ese el camino a seguir para el cuidado de salud, la reforma tributaria y las asignaciones.

“Ya es hora de que los republicanos en el Congreso muevan al país hacia delante mediante discusión y mutuo acuerdo bipartidistas.

“Les damos las gracias a todos los miembros de Pan para el Mundo que se reunieron con sus miembros del Congreso o les contactaron por teléfono, correo electrónico y cartas. Agradecemos especialmente a las senadoras Collins y Murkowski por sus votos valientes”.
