Gordon Explains Vote On Health Care Reform

The vote has been taken, but the debate continues. Congressman Bart Gordon used his web site to explain why he voted in favor of health care reform legislation, using as an example a woman he called "Beverly in Cookeville," who he says could not get employer-based health care, even though both she and her husband work. Gordon says he thinks the health care bill passed by the House on Sunday will reduce health care costs; improve access to affordable care; and lower the budget deficit.
