Manzullo joins health care plan protesters on steps of U.S. Capitol
From press release
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo (R-16) joined dozens of his colleagues and thousands of Americans on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Nov. 5 for a news conference to protest Speaker of the House U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) health care plan (H.R. 3962).
The House is scheduled to vote Saturday on Pelosi’s 1,990-page bill.
Manzullo supports an alternative Republican bill that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office states would reduce health insurance premiums up to 10 percent and cut the deficit by $68 billion without raising taxes and without threatening the health insurance of millions of Americans.

Pelosi said of the bill Oct. 29: “It will not add one dime to the deficit as it expands coverage, implements key insurance reforms, and promotes prevention and wellness across the health system. The bill will expand coverage, including a public option to boost choice and competition in the health insurance reform.
“It covers 96 percent of all Americans and it puts affordable coverage in reach for millions of uninsured and underinsured families — lowering health care costs for all of us,” she added.
