This week, the United States Senate will be voting on a motion to proceed to consideration of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) healthcare bill. This bill would increase taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade, saddle future generations with another unfunded entitlement, and destroy private sector health insurance.
A vote to proceed with this deeply-flawed legislation is tantamount to a vote in support of the bill. A VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION TO PROCEED IS A VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE BILL.
For that reason, Americans for Tax Reform WILL RATE a vote against moving to proceed in our annual “Hero of the Taxpayer” Congressional scorecard.
