U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson, who voted against the health care reform bill, spoke briefly at a DFL fundraiser Saturday at a casino near Redwood Falls.
At the very end of a story in the Marshall Independent newspaper about the fundraiser is this paragraph on Peterson’s short speech to the partisan crowd:
“I’m aware people are very much disappointed in my vote,” Peterson said, citing thousands of phone calls and e-mails at his office. “There are reasons for it,” although he said it would take more time than he had to explain them all. Now that it has passed, however, Peterson said, “I will support it, and I will work to make this work.”
