"Americans are demanding that President Obama and the Democrats in control of Congress scrap their misguided plan of a government takeover of health care….They want Washington to start over with a step-by-step approach to health care reform that begins with reducing costs and ensures they can keep their current plan if they like it," Camp says. “For those families and small businesses looking for a sign that Washington is ready to wake up and find common sense on this issue, next week’s White House health care summit may not be it."
