Baucus and Kennedy vow action on healthcare

Wall Street Journal, February 6, 2009

Two key congressional players on healthcare vowed their commitment to moving forward with reform legislation in a letter to President Barack Obama. "We are writing to affirm our continuing commitment to enacting comprehensive healthcare reform this year, and to express our confidence that you will swiftly choose an exceptionally qualified and dedicated alternate nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services to assist in our efforts. As you have emphasized, we must act now," wrote Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus of Montana and Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee Secretary Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts.
