Healthcare bill would not raise deficit, report says
Congressional budget analysts announced that a Senate panel's healthcare $829 billion overhaul would dramatically shrink the ranks of the uninsured and keep President Obama's pledge that doing so would not add to federal budget deficits. According to the CBO, the Finance Committee measure would expand coverage to an additional 29 million Americans by 2019 by expanding Medicaid coverage for the poor and by subsidizing private insurance for low- and middle-income Americans.
