AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, February 3, 2009

A political stalemate in Pennsylvania over how to expand state-subsidized healthcare is entering its third year, with the latest competing plans being introduced by political adversaries. During his annual budget speech, Gov. Ed Rendell will reveal a plan to double the number of people enrolled in the state's low-cost health insurance program by asking for federal aid. The Senate GOP favors a plan to expand services through low-cost community health clinics.
