Issa Challenges Speaker to Hold Up or Down Vote on H.R. 3438

WASHINGTON. D.C. – House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) has challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to hold an up-or-down vote on H.R. 3438, the Access to Insurance for All Americans Act which would give all Americans access to the same health benefit plans that Members of Congress and federal employees choose from for their health care coverage.  Also today, Rep. Issa released a new video revealing the President, in his own words, rhetorically supporting Issa’s bill:

“President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have said that the American people deserve the same high quality health care that Members of Congress receive.  Then why is it that H.R. 3438, a simple seven-page bill that gives everyone in America the opportunity to have the same quality health care as Members of Congress, is being ignored?  The current health care proposal is thousands of pages of promises that ultimately do not give Americans what the President and Speaker claim they want to give.  I challenge Speaker Pelosi to give H.R. 3438 a straight up-or-down vote and I would bet that a bipartisan miracle would happen on the House floor.”
