Murphy justifies 'No' vote on health care

Murphy said he does support health care reform, if it's designed right.

"There's widespread agreement about the problem, but a lot of disagreement about the solution," he said, noting that he fully supports the concept of getting every American covered with affordable health care coverage, that lifetime caps on health care payments should be banned, and that pre-existing condition exclusions should also be prohibited.

"Insurance is supposed to help you under the worst circumstances, and it makes no sense to have these exclusions," he said. "But if we don't fix this cost growth in health care reform, it's an open-ended problem for the government and individual families to pay those bills."
