The State of Play in Finance
Shailagh Murray and Lori Montgomery have a good look at the state of play within the Finance Committee's negotiations on the health care bill. They've cut subsidies and coverage provisions. They're closing in on the magic $1 trillion number. They're undecided on the public plan but focusing on some sort of compromise built around co-ops. The bill is likely to include substantial future cuts in Medicaid and Medicare and a $300 billion tax on employer health benefits. "Prospects for bipartisan support appear to have brightened," write Murray and Montgomery.
