 It's pretty clear that they've been trying to disguise their position on tax cuts as a small business issue when the facts tell a very different story. They are using the label of small business to disguise the fact that some of the biggest beneficiaries [of keeping tax rates on the wealthy in place] are hedge funds, major Washington law firms, big private equity companies... What a sham.

 We have to be absolutely convinced that this is going to accomplish the goal of holding down the cost of health insurance. The American consumer cannot be left hostage to the whims of private insurance. We're asking every American to share some responsibility in getting health insurance; we need to ensure that every American can afford it.
