Tester statement on health care reform summit

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the President’s bipartisan White House summit on health care reform:

“Today’s meeting saw a lot of disagreement.  But it was a step toward the bipartisanship Montanans expect.  And it was a reminder that we’ve got to work together through these differences, because the stakes are just too high.

“We can work together to get something done, or we can do nothing.

“If we do nothing, Medicare will go bust, health care costs will continue to break Montana families, no one will hold insurance companies accountable, and rates will continue to go up.

“I’m not in the do-nothing camp.”
