Statement by Governor Daniels on passage of federal health care bill

"Our two best hopes for more jobs are investment and small business.  The new 'health care' bill raises taxes drastically on both, and will harm our economic prospects badly.  Hoosiers will also face higher state taxes as Medicaid rolls explode. It will raise by trillions the crushing debt we already are leaving young Americans; any claims to the contrary are worse than mistaken, they are knowingly fraudulent.  In a life of optimism about America and its future, this morning I am as discouraged as I can remember being."

The governor discussed the bill's Indiana impact with reporters during a brief media availability this morning.  Audio of the governor's comments can be found at this address: http://www.in.gov/gov/files/Audio/032210_Media_Availability.mp3
