Progress being made on healthcare says Michaud


Congressmen Mike Michaud is preparing to leave the halls of power for August recess. Taking a pause is the last thing this Blue Dog wants to do right now. Michaud and his colleagues are elbow deep in health care legislation with an agreeable solution getting closer, according to Michaud.

from The Exception:

“Congress is preparing to adjourn for the August break. I voted against adjournment so that we could stay in session and complete work on a health care reform package. Though it appears Congress will break for the month of August, I believe that the ongoing work on health care reform is positive and demonstrates that some good progress has been made”

Michaud broke ranks with other Blue Dogs last June over restrictions the Blue Dog Coalition wished to place on the size of the public health option and other limitations. In a recent editorial Michaud stated that he would not vote for any health care plan without a public option and is hopeful that small businesses will be treated fairly in the health care legislation.
