(Washington, D.C.) – The Americans for Stable Quality Care (ASQC) coalition, a coalition of 19 pro-health reform organizations, applauds the Oct. 13 Senate Finance Committee vote, which the coalition said brings our country one step closer to making stable, affordable health care a reality for all Americans. ASQC is working to urge Congress to continue its efforts to deliver a bill to President Obama’s desk in 2009. The following statement may be attributed to ASQC spokesperson Phil Singer:
“With today’s historic, bipartisan vote by the Senate Finance Committee, this Congress is en route to making history. All those who support reform must work together to keep the process moving forward to make stable, affordable health care a reality for all Americans. The 19 organizations that form ASQC come from across the health care spectrum and will not rest until meaningful health reform is passed in 2009.”
