Democrats voice health-bill doubts

Wall Street Journal, March 8, 2010

Some House Democrats wavering over whether to back a healthcare overhaul questioned whether it would effectively curb the country's health costs, the Wall Street Journal reports. The issue is one of several that have been raised by Democrats over the bill: Conservative Democrats have raised questions over the bill's language on abortion and tax increases, while liberals are unhappy with its failure to include a government plan that would compete with private insurers, the Journal reports.
