Re: Letter from President Obama

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D Mont.) made the following comments today after receiving a letter from President Obama regarding health care reform.

From Senator Baucus:

“It’s clear that President Obama and I are in lockstep in our view that we must act quickly to drive down the growth of health care costs and ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage. Working together will be crucial throughout the health care reform process and that is asentiment echoed by the President today. Health care reform is my top priority and I will stop at nothing to deliver a health reform bill that works for families and businesses to the President this year.”
