Cardoza: House Reform Bill Provides ‘Enormous Benefits’
Although the House health care reform bill "is not perfect," it "will provide enormous benefits for those I was elected to represent," argues Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Calif.). Cardoza writes that in his district, one-quarter of the residents lack health coverage, there is a doctor shortage and hospitals are losing money by providing care to residents who cannot afford it. Cardoza continues that the House reform bill "will provide significant improvements to the Valley and meets 90% of what I sought in health care reform."
