So said Rep. McGovern (D-Mass.) moments ago in the floor debate on HR 3692 in the House of Representatives. That was his characterization of the health care reform that the Republicans would prefer.

The R’s have a new tactic this morning. After the increase in the unemployment rate was announced yesterday, they are now calling HR 3692:

a job-killing (4 million free-enterprise jobs), debt-piling, small business tax increasing, major overhaul of health care delivery in this country.

Meanwhile, the D’s are reminding constituents that:

the bill invests in prevention, wellness and public health, according to Rep. Doris Matsui (D-CA). She also reminded us that this bill will prevent medical bankruptcies and close the “donut hole” of Medicare Part D.

Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio) fights back by saying,

It’s time to make coverage accessible and affordable. We’ve waited too long…..

Presiding over the House debate today is Rep. Charles Dingell (D-MI), who presided over the debate on the Medicare legislation in 1965.
