WASHINGTON – Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, much in the news because of his questioning of the main House health care reform bill, found himself being praised late last week by the Heritage Foundation, a fiercely conservative Washington think thank.
In a blog on the foundation’s Web site, one Heritage official wrote:
“Thankfully, Blue Dog Democrats like Arkansas Congressman Mike Ross are making an effort to stop this assault on your personal health care. Ross says: “We cannot support the current bill.”
The blog item, “Are You Feeling Lucky Punk?” argues that the House bill would eventually drive the private insurance companies out of business and leave Americans with less choice.
