Liberal senator: Health reform bill has no 'cost-containment' provisions 

"Can I sit up here or stand here with a straight face and say, we have got strong cost-containment provisions in this legislation? That if you're an ordinary person who has employer-based health care, that your premiums are not going to go up in the next eight years based on what’s in this bill? I can't say that. It’s just not accurate."

--Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., speaking on the floor of the Senate today.
