Number of insured varies by bill

Wall Street Journal, November 13, 2009

The health bills passed through Senate committees would extend insurance to fewer people than the final bill passed through the House last week, and Senate leaders have been refining their bill to increase that number. Hospitals and insurance companies warn that if the final Senate bill doesn't cover more people than its earlier drafts, insurance prices will increase and industry pledges to cut costs could fall apart, the Wall Street Journal reports.
