What They're Saying: Voters On Health Care
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Many of yesterday's voters had something to say about President Obama's health care law.
Mr. TOM BUTTERMORE: I was strongly against the health care bill, and I think that they just ramrodded that down due to their majority kind of, you know, control of Congress. And I totally disagree with that. I think it was a total abuse of power.
MONTAGNE: That's Tom Buttermore(ph) of Centennial, Colorado. Steve Dubias lives in Illinois.
Mr. STEVE DUBIAS: Health care, it's a big issue to me. As a musician, it's really hard to find affordable health care and to find someone who's going to go out there and support the national effort to get health care out there. I'm really in favor of that.
MONTAGNE: Strong opinions, for and against. But already, this morning, the man who is expected the new speaker of the house, John Boehner, is talking of repealing the administration's health care overhaul - calling it a monstrosity.
