Inslee: Health care reform

"The road to a balanced budget and a fully funded education system runs directly through health care reform.

Effectively implementing the Affordable Care Act will save us money.

This session, we must make sure Washington gets this right, first.

We must also protect the quality and choice from a health care system that works. Washington women need the freedom and privacy to make the health care decision that are best for themselves and their families. That's why I look forward to the Legislature sending the Reproductive Parity Act to my desk, which I will sign."

This led to large cheers from Democrats, silence from Republicans.
