Ohio Governor John Kasich's statement on the Senate health reform bill:
"I have deep concerns with details in the U.S. Senate's plan to fix America's health care system and the resources needed to help our most vulnerable, including those who are dealing with drug addiction, mental illness and chronic health problems and have nowhere else to turn.
Sustainable solutions to the many complex problems facing our health care system will never be solved with a one-party approach that's developed behind closed doors, without public discussion and input.
I'm encouraging Senators to step back and take a good, hard look at this important issue - and to reach across the aisle in working toward solutions. That's the only way to address the flaws of Obamacare that we can all agree need to be fixed."
