Boustany to deliver GOP response

From NBC's Chuck Todd and Mark Murray
House Minority Leader John Boehner's office has announced that Louisiana GOP Rep. Charles Boustany, a doctor, will deliver the GOP response to President Obama's health-care address tomorrow night.

"Dr. Boustany has been a tireless advocate for reform that lowers health care costs and expands access for the American people at a price our nation can afford," Boehner said in a statement. "He understands why a Washington bureaucrat - as Democrats have proposed - should never get between a doctor and his patient. I'm pleased Charles has agreed to speak to the American people about a Republican vision for reform and the need for both parties to come together to craft a responsible proposal at a time when people across the country are focused on jobs."
