Obama Fails to Sway Lynch

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) said Thursday afternoon that he remains opposed to the health care bill that is headed to a vote on the House floor this weekend, and he said a visit with President Barack Obama did not change his mind.

“I’m against it,” he said.

Before meeting Obama, Lynch ripped the Senate health care bill and doubted whether it could be fixed.

“I just think it’s a very poor bill,” Lynch said. “We’re trying to be convinced by some that we can fix this bill. A $1 trillion bill should not require fixing.”

Lynch, a former union president and active union member, called the Senate bill a “surrender” to insurance companies.
