Hoyer Presses for Health Overhaul, No Easy Options

Tuesday, 26 Jan 2010 09:58 AM


The No. 2 Democrat in the House is conceding there are no easy solutions to saving President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, but says the goals remain the same.

Rep. Steny Hoyer said in a speech Tuesday that Democrats are taking time to find the best way of making reform a reality. The Maryland Democrat also said lawmakers face four options — no bill, a scaled-back measure, the House passing the Senate bill and the House passing the Senate bill accompanied by some changes to accommodate House Democrats.

Hoyer said: "There are no easy choices. But the objective of accessible, affordable, quality care remains." Democratic leaders are scrambling to save the legislation after losing the Democratic Senate seat in Massachusetts last week and their filibuster-proof majority.
