Sioux Falls, SD —  Senator John Thune today made the following comments after the U. S. House of Representatives voted on the Democrats’ health care legislation:

“After more than a year of watching unemployment skyrocket and deficits explode, President Obama and Congressional Democrats finally made good today on their threat to pass a health care bill against the will of the American people. Today's action demonstrates that President Obama and the Congressional Democrats think that their ideological agenda and perceived legacy are more important than the voice of the American people. Their obsession to jam through a bill that will impact every single American family and small business without a single Republican vote redefines partisanship and shows that their agenda is out of touch with the majority of Americans.”
