Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA), Vice-Chair of the House Republican Conference, has been a strong leader on the health care front. In addition to a special health care section on her web site, the Congresswoman's office will be publishing a "Daily Fact About Women and Health Care" each day this week. Today's fact follows:
*Women are most responsible for their family members’ health care and spend 2 out of every 3 health care dollars.
*Nearly eight-in-ten (79%) mothers are responsible for their children’s health care decisions

These women and health care factoids are brought to you courtesy of the Vice-Chair’s office. As the House begins debate on HR 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act, it is important to understand the significant role women play in health care.
