ALBANY, GA (WALB) – U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss wants to toss the entire health insurance reform bill. He signed on to an effort to repeal it.
Senators worked deep into the night voting on amendments to the House Reconciliation Bill, that's the so-called "fix it bill" to the big reform measure that's now law. Senator Chambliss did not expect Republicans to be successful with any of their proposed changes. Despite a lot of good parts to the law, he wants to repeal it all. Chambliss said, "There are good provisions in the bill. There's no question about it, and those are the provisions the President is gonna be talking about, but he's not gonna be talking about the fact that there's nothing in this bill seeking to drive down either the cost of health care delivery or the cost of insurance premiums."
Chambliss said the bill will put a greater burden on American taxpayers, and he said he believes some state Attorneys General have good arguments in a legal challenge to the bill.
Chambliss encouraged extreme opponents of the new law to settle down. There have been numerous reports of threats against Congressmen who voted for health care reform and vandalism at their offices. Chambliss says that's regrettable and that's not the way Americans should react to political differences.
