Waxman Released, Expected Back at Work Next Week

By Paul Kane
After two days in the hospital, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) is being released today, a spokeswoman said, and he is expected back in the Capitol next week.

Waxman, 69, fainted Tuesday and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His office did not elaborate on the fainting spell or its cause. A spokeswoman from the House Energy and Commerce Committee said in a statement that the congressman is "in good health."

Waxman, the chair of that committee, just finished shepherding a landmark climate-change bill through the House and is now expected to play a leading role in crafting health-care legislation.

I wish Senator Waxman the very best. He is a fine man who has worked hard to right the wrongs done by Bush and Cheney. America needs caring people like Senator Waxman working to correct the republican mistakes that have harmed this country so much.
