Dem: “covering the uninsured not what HCR about.”

Rep. Mike Ross (D-Ark.) said on Wednesday that providing healthcare to uninsured Americans is “not what this healthcare reform debate is about.”


“That is a side benefit to healthcare reform and an important one,” Ross toldthe Arkansas Educational Television Network. Instead, the fifth-term congressman said the bill should focus on “cost containment.”

So says Democrat Mike Ross. WTF? So many of us have been saying this all along: this legislation isn’t about healthcare; it’s about expanding the power of the executive branch. If it’s not about covering the uninsured as was so often sold with that bogus “47 million uninsured” number, then what is the point?
