Stark reintroduces his healthcare bill
Rep. Pete Stark, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee's health panel, has reintroduced his healthcare legislation without waiting for details from President-elect Barack Obama. Stark has introduced versions of the overhaul legislation for the last 15 years, and recently said he wanted to wait for Obama to spell out his priorities so lawmakers can work to "accomplish his goals." A spokesman for Stark said the bill is designed to provide healthcare coverage for all Americans, and fits within the framework Obama set during the presidential campaign.
