Health Care Reform Gets Push from the White House

The debate over health system reform took a more partisan turn this week when President Obama called for Congress to take an up or down vote on the health care reform bill.  Read his remarks   on the New York Times web page.

Reporters Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Robert Pear put the President’s remarks in context in this story, which explains what the President’s advisors are expected to ask Congress to do.   

While the NCMS supports meaningful health system reform, it is not supporting the bill now before the House and Senate. (See Health Care Reform: Looking for Direction,  Bulletin, February 5, 2010). NCMS members are urged to review the Health System Reform section on the NCMS web page,, and contact their Representatives and Senators explaining the need to rethink and amend current reform legislation.
