Cravaack Votes to Stop Health Care Reform Spending

Congressman Chip Cravaack voted to repeal the Prevention and Public Health Fund from within the health care reform legislation. The Fund provides the Secretary of Health and Human Services almost $18 billion over the next decade for increased federal spending on various public health programs.

The 8th District Republican says, “Giving Secretary Sebelius and the unelected bureaucrats at the Department of Health and Human Services an $18 billion check to fund just about anything that could loosely be described as benefiting public health – such as jungle gyms and bike paths – is a complete abandonment of Congress’ duty to control the federal government’s purse strings.”
