Pelosi: GOP, Insurers Ready to Attack Health Bill

Thursday, 18 Mar 2010 01:14 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is predicting an all-out assault by Republicans and the insurance industry as Democrats prepare to push their health care overhaul through Congress.

The California Democrat said at a news conference Thursday that "there is no limit" to what the bill's GOP opponents will do to protect insurance companies. Insurers have opposed the legislation, saying it does too little to control rising health care costs.

Pelosi said insurers have made "a fortune off the misfortunes of the American people." She predicted they would portray the bill misleadingly as they try to kill the legislation. She said of the bill, "This is history, and this is progress."

House leaders plan a Sunday vote on the bill.
