In case there’s any doubt about where our region’s congressmen stand on health care reform: “Deceiving the American people in order to pass a trillion-dollar nationalized health care plan smells of dirty Washington politics,” said Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard. “I oppose President Obama’s plans to take over one-sixth of our nation’s economy, and I oppose Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi’s plans to sneak it past the House without a vote.” Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, said: “When all the budgetary gimmicks are removed, we see this bill for what it is, a trillion dollar budget breaker that we cannot afford and that won’t improve everyday Americans’ access to affordable health care. It’s the worst of both worlds: Breaking the bank, breaking the Treasury and not controlling health care costs.”
