Boehner: Health Bill Fails the Country

Sunday, 21 Mar 2010 10:26 PM


House Republican leader John Boehner says congressional health care legislation fails the country and says Congress has failed to listen to America.

Boehner drew hisses from Democrats as he criticized the Democratic overhaul of health coverage. He asked for Democrats to conduct a rare roll call vote on the bill. Democrats did not immediately agree.

Not a single Republican is expected to vote for the bill, a priority of President Barack Obama. Democratic leaders appear to have secured the votes to pass it.

Boehner said the vote "disgraces" the values of history's lawmakers. And he said voters will hold House members to account for passing the bill.
