COLBY, Kan. - Lucy Belnora, KFP journalist, offered a well-researched analysis of the House bill, H.R. 3961, that was unveiled and posted on the Internet today.
The new House bill is likely to be viewed more favorably by more voters than the Senate bills because of its inclusion of an all-states (not opt-out) public option plan.
That prediction is largely based on national polls that indicate the majority of Americans are in favor of a national public option health care plan.
Already, advocacy groups on the right and left are reacting to the bill.
