"This shouldnt be called a health care bill of rights, but a bill of goods that the American people arent buying. ... Ninety days after the president signed it into law, one thing hasnt changed: The American people are as opposed now as they were then. Politically motivated threats wont lower skyrocketing health care costs."
Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican, said that Mr. Obama making more promises is a bad idea, considering the problems keeping the ones made earlier.
