Archer: "We're Determined to Make the House Bill the Standard for Reform"

WASHINGTON, July 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Campaign for America's Future health care project director Diane Archer today praised the House for introducing a health reform bill that delivers on President Obama's vision. Archer declared that America's Affordable Health Choices Act is designed to control costs and deliver quality affordable health care to all. She said the bill, if passed without serious changes, can accomplish these goals.

STATEMENT OF DIANE ARCHER

The House bill makes it possible to achieve quality, affordable health care for all.

We're determined to make sure that the House bill sets the standard for achieving necessary change. We urge the House to pass this bill and encourage members of the Senate to emulate its key provisions. We must reject efforts by conservatives to erode or weaken its key elements.

The House bill would strengthen employer-based insurance and allow people to keep what they have if they like it, while giving people without employer coverage the choice between public and private insurance plans.

It would create a national public health insurance plan option to compete on a level playing field with private insurers, reining in costs and delivering better value.

It would create a national insurance exchange with both private and public plan options to give everyone access to affordable, reliable and comprehensive health care coverage.

And it would help people with low incomes afford health insurance.
