Rehberg Responds to ‘Pelosi Health Care Bill’

By Beacon Staff

And he doesn’t like it …

“At my sixteen town hall meetings this August, thousands of Montanans voiced their opinions about health care reform. Time and time again, I heard from Montanans that they stand with me in opposition to a government-run public option and government-forced insurance. While there is a need for health care reform that will increase access and affordability of coverage to those who want it, Montanans have the right to be heard, not only on what’s in the bill, but also what’s missing. This morning, House Democrats unveiled a brand new $900 billion health-care plan that’s almost 1,000 pages longer than the last one. In the coming days, I look forward to invaluable input from Montanans on this 2,000-page bill.”

The congressman said he will be hosting an emergency health care reform town hall in Billings on Saturday morning to discuss the legislation.
