The bill which was opposed by almost all Republicans on grounds of bigger debt and socialist style health care is also receiving a hard line opposition from the public. However, there are many who hails the bill as a genuine solution to provide universal health care to all Americans. (PHOTO from Promote Health & Wellness)
Here is a detail report on the Bill published by Yahoo: The Buzz Log:
The House wrangled its version last month. While President Obama says the two proposals are 95% "identical," that 5% difference has spurred some furious negotiations.
- The bill for the health care reform bill? The House version costs more than a trillion, while the Senate's is a tad cheaper at $871 billion.
- People with comfy incomes will have to pay more taxes to help pay for reform, if the House has its way. The Senate stays away from that, but adds a 10% tax on indoor tanning booths.
- Funding for abortion and a public option are two of the more heated controversies.
- A New York congresswoman wrote an op-ed tearing apart the Senate bill for, among other things, letting insurance companies keep enjoying their antitrust status.
