Study raises questions about public health plan

AP/Yahoo News, April 7, 2009

The report by the Lewin Group said it all depends on details that lawmakers are far from deciding. But the report could provide ammunition for critics who say a public plan would move in the direction of government-run medicine, according to the Associated Press.
