Healthcare debate still alive and well for parties

Washington Post, June 9, 2010

After a year of debate, the two parties are still arguing about healthcare reform, the Washington Post reports. One point of contention is a newly released brochure to Medicare recipients. Democrats say it explains how the new law works, but Republicans cast it as government-funded propaganda. Republican congressmen talk regularly about trying to repeal the law, while Democrats accuse them of being tools of the health insurance industry. Lately, Republicans have been attacking the nomination of Donald Berwick to run the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, reports the Post.
