Blog for Iowa: Tom Harkin stumps for Curt Hanson at fundraiser in Jefferson County
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
... Senator Harkin provided an update of the debate over health care reform in Washington. He spoke about the need for Democrats to take the lead, about bi-partisanship and about the difference in approaches between his committee (Health, Education, Labor and Pensions) and that of Senator Baucus (Finance), asserting that Health Education, Labor and Pensions, had a more Democratic approach to creating the legislation they moved out of committee last week. Senator Harkin also discussed what citizens can expect of a Democratically sponsored Health Care Reform bill.
