Healthcare reform is a defining issue of our time. The action the Congress takes on this issue will determine how healthcare is delivered, to whom it is delivered, and how much it costs, for many years to come. There is an incredible amount of information on the subject—including a great deal of misinformation.

Soon I’ll post an article giving you my opinion on healthcare reform, but until I can do that I think it important that you have access to credible, factual information, including the full text of the proposed House bill, HR 3200.

Full Text and Discussion of H.R. 3200

http://waysandmeans.house.gov/MoreInfo.asp?section=52 is the official site of the House Ways and Means committee. It contains the full text of the bill and a number of articles, prepared by committee staff, that discuss what’s in the bill. An extensive FAQ section is included.

Proposals of the Senate Finance Committee

http://finance.senate.gov/sitepages/legislation.htm is the official site of the Senate Finance committee. It contains several proposals for healthcare reform legislation; but I warn you—it’s pretty heavy going.
