Here are some quick links for today about the health care reform debate.
One of the primary concerns about the House version of the health care reform bill is whether it would do anything to contain the cost of medical care. According to a major new study, it would.
But the Senate is working on its own compromise, because there are not enough votes for a bill like the House's bill. What does the House bill have that the Senate can't agree with? Two words: public option.
But the Senate is close to its own version of the bill. Will that version save money as well? Maybe, but we don't know yet. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about what the Senate is working on.
One thing's for sure: even if a bill passes, the political debate surrounding its policies is unlikely to end.
