Cooper Says Health Reform Can't Add to Deficit

Posted By on Thu, Jul 23, 2009 at 12:40 PM

On Bloomberg News, Congressman Jim Cooper insists the Blue Dogs are the good guys in the health care debate. "We believe we're helping the president achieve his goals." In another interview on MSNBC, Cooper lays out what he wants: He says the bill has to be "deficit neutral" in less than 10 years and "bend the cost curve in the right direction." He says he personally favors a public plan, and taxing health benefits. He says Medicaid can't be completely free forever to the states.
