Democrats are urged to preserve broad healthcare overhaul

Los Angeles Times, January 22, 2010

Consumer groups, patient advocates, and doctors have called on Democrats not to abandon the comprehensive health overhaul they have worked so long to pass. "The legislation passed by the House and Senate would broaden access to quality, affordable healthcare to tens of millions of people who are currently uninsured or underinsured," wrote leaders of AARP, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Consumers Union, Families USA, and Service Employees International Union. The joint letter was sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
