Statement on Public Option

TUSCON, Ariz - Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive
Caucus issues the flowing statement concerning the  public option in the upcoming
health care reform legislation:

"The
public option is central to healthcare reform. Real reform, which lowers costs
and ensures all Americans get the quality, affordable healthcare that they
deserve, cannot be accomplished without a robust public option.  As we
have stated repeatedly for months now, a majority of the members of the
Congressional Progressive Caucus will oppose any healthcare reform legislation
that does not include a robust public option.  Our position has not,
and will not, change.  As Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus,  I look
forward to working with my colleagues to develop comprehensive legislation that
allows all Americans to choose the healthcare plan that’s right for them
and their families.  But I will not support any bill that does not
include a public option."
