Rep. Bill Foster, a Batavia Democrat whose district extends into parts of Huntley and Algonquin, also said both sides of the aisle have the same main goal.Well, I'd like to enunciate for the Congressman one side of the aisle said the Prez lied. I wouldn't call that actually accepted by both sides of the aisle.
“I was very impressed at how the core principles that he enunciated were actually accepted by both sides of the aisle,” Foster said, citing not building up additional debt and stopping policies that make it difficult for those with preexisting medical conditions to find health insurance.
But Foster said that he, too, would like to see more details, especially about the public option.
“I’d like to see the details of what will determine whether or not a state would have the public option or not. He mentioned being willing to talk about trigger mechanism, but the details are very important,” Foster said.
He said he wants to see rapid progress in Washington.
