(BISMARCK, ND) – In response to news that Senate Republicans have, for a second time, fallen short of the votes necessary to move their ‘health care’ bill forward, Democratic-NPL executive director Robert Haider issued the following statement:

“Senator John Hoeven now has a choice. He has the opportunity to come to the table and actually work with Democrats in a real bipartisan way to protect and improve health care for all North Dakotans. Or, he can continue hiding from the process, hoping the discussion on health care will go away. The next step is up to him.”
