Universal healthcare bill unveiled in Washington

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, January 22, 2008
The Washington state Senate's healthcare chairwoman has unveiled an ambitious universal healthcare plan, bankrolled by payroll taxes, that she hopes to implement by 2010. The "Washington Health Partnership" would levy new taxes on businesses and workers, using the proceeds to extend health benefits to all Washingtonians not covered by a federal program.
