Health Care Reform Bill

23 Mar

The recently passed House health care reform bill has generated a lot of buzz. This ‘buzz’, as observed on social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter, seemed haphazard- and while not necessarily uninformed, half-informed at best. Hoping to form my own honest and more fully informed opinion, I set out to find out exactly what is actually in the bill. With all the hype, (positive and negative alike) it’s hard to get a straightforward account of the substance of the bill. I was hoping a quick Google search would do the trick, but I should have known better- more opinion and ceremony than actual substance filled the 29,100,000 Google hits for health care reform.

So, for the frustrated fact finder- here is what I found after a more informed search: is a great online magazine that covers the same broad range of topics as a traditional newspaper. I turn to Slate for straightforward, detailed- but easy to understand- news coverage. This article is from the Slate ‘Explainer’ series, which offers a breakdown of complicated issues in the news.
