“We have an opportunity here, an opportunity for real reform,” Dold said during a speech on the House floor. “We want that, we need that, the American people have demanded it. From American businesses and people all across the United States, they demand it. And from the other side that said we came and had healthcare reform, I did not take the congressional plan.”
