Pelosi puts onus on industry

Washington Post, July 24, 2009

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she doesn't feel bound by the $235 billion in deals that the White House and the Senate Finance Committee cut with hospital and pharmaceutical companies to defray costs of a new healthcare plan, stating that she thinks the industries could do more. The nation's hospitals have agreed to forgo $155 billion in government healthcare reimbursements, and drug companies promised $80 billion, to help keep the cost of President Obama's healthcare reform plan under $1 trillion.
