AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, October 9, 2008
The prospect of expanding subsidized health coverage to thousands of uninsured Pennsylvanians before the end of the year has died, as Gov. Ed Rendell and Senate Republicans failed to reach a compromise on the plan's price tag. Rendell expressed disappointment over the lack of an agreement, and called the Senate GOP's resistance to his efforts at a compromise "inexplicable."
