Congressman Kanjorski told it like it is today on WILK Radio when he told the radio hosts that he thought President Obama compromised too much on health care reform. He's right and I'm glad someone had the stones to say it. The GOP will never concede that health care reform needs a true overhaul because it is not in their basic nature. Here's a recap from the WILK website: 11th District Congressman Paul Kanjorski talked with WILK's Nancy Kman and Sue Henry Tuesday morning about healthcare reform. He also took email questions from listeners on the issue. Kanjorski says it's 'the burden of the President to sell, provide the information, the analysis and facts to the Congress of the United States and the American people" on healthcare reform." Kanjorski also says "I think the President may have compromised too much on this bill, in making deals with the drug companies, with the medical profession, with the hospital profession, with the insurance carriers, that he's taken all of the areas out of consideration that are necessary to get cost containment."
