Report boosts bipartisan health plan

AP/Yahoo News, May 2, 2008

A bipartisan plan for universal healthcare coverage would pay for itself and eventually could create modest budget surpluses, according to a report from the Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation. The healthcare plan could be fully operational by 2012 and bring in as much revenue as it costs to implement by 2014. The report showed it is possible to provide healthcare coverage for all Americans without a large tax increase, said one supporter.
