NAM commends Taylor for voting against healthcare bill
Published: March 23,2010
WASHINGTON — The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is expressing its thanks to Congressman Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) for opposing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590).
“Manufacturers commend Congressman Taylor for his leadership and political courage in opposing this fundamentally flawed legislation,” said NAM president John Engler. “The United States has lost more than two million manufacturing jobs since Dec. 2007. Congressman Taylor recognized that this legislation will put additional burdens on America’s job creators.
“Ninety-seven percent of our members offer high-quality healthcare benefits. Like Congressman Taylor, our members support proposals that will reduce soaring health costs, improve the efficiency of the current system and enhance the quality of care. Based on the Congressional Budget Office numbers, the Act could cost as much as $2 trillion over 10 years once it takes full effect. This is not reform. We will continue to urge the Senate and the Administration to do what’s best for the country’s economic recovery and start over on reform.”
