Castillo Statement on Senate Health Care Vote

Our elected officials in Washington D.C. should be focusing on reigning in the out-of-control cost of health care, increasing access to those not covered, and ensuring that those of us happy with our coverage can keep it. This is what they promised us and they have yet to deliver.

Instead, they have chosen to steal $500 billion from Medicare – from a promise we made to our parents and grandparents. In addition, the Senate bill includes a government mandate that will force Americans to purchase health insurance or face a fine, or jail time. It is an unconscionable overreach of government authority that I believe will be deemed unconstitutional.

Also, I am by no means convinced that federal funds will not be used to fund abortions, and the majority of Americans have been consistent in their view that taxpayer dollars should not be used to pay for this procedure.

It is time that our elected representatives listen to the American people, or be replaced by those of us who will.
