Bean, Halvorson Will Vote Yes On Health Care

Saturday, March 20, 2010 - U.S. Representatives Melissa Bean (8th District) and Debbie Halvorson (11th) announced today that they will support Health Care "reform" in the crucial vote in Congress tomorrow. Read Bean's press release. Read Halvorson's press release. Rep. Bill Foster (14th) has still not decided how to vote. A late morning report from the Daily Herald says that Foster "still had not made up his mind today, a spokesman said. He continues to read and evaluate the lengthy legislation." David Rogers of said this about Bean's decision: "Illinois Rep. Melissa Bean, a swing Democratic vote and leader in the business-oriented New Democrats caucus, came off the fence for healthcare reform Saturday, telling POLITICO that the promise of long-term deficit reduction and small business tax credits had helped to win her over." House Minority Leader John Boehner wrote this on his Twitter page around 4:00 p.m. EDT: "If we can stop the 'Slaughter Solution,' the American people can stop this hc takeover." Boehner gave a link to "House Democrats abandon 'deem and pass'," an article in The Washington Times today. RELATED ITEMS: Two Ill.
