White House Spokesman Reid Cherlin gave Fox News Channel the following reaction to yesterday's Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) cost analysis of the Senate Finance committee health care bill:

"This is another important step forward for health reform. The analysis confirms that we can provide stability and security for Americans with insurance and affordable options for uninsured American without adding a dime to the deficit - and saving money over the long term."
