Senate bill sets lines for health showdown
The major new healthcare overhaul bill sets the lines for a fall showdown over taxes, spending, and coverage for millions of uninsured Americans, notes the Wall Street Journal. Beneficiaries of the Baucus bill include people who lack insurance, especially older people who have trouble buying coverage on their own. The Baucus plan would require insurers to accept all comers, even those who are already sick, and establish subsidies for lower- and middle-income Americans to buy insurance.
