(Feb. 6, 2006)
"In recent years, most politicians have talked about health care reform as though there is a one-size-fits-all solution out there that we haven't thought of before. There isn't.

Extending refundable tax credits for health insurance to the working poor would be a good start."

But as the states and the federal government argue over reimbursement terms, a far larger battle looms over the troubled new program."
