Republicans have moved toward promoting a form of health care reform according to the politico.com:
Under fierce attack by Democrats over the children’s health insurance plan, House Minority Leader John A. Boehner said Sunday Republicans will unveil their own health care plan over the next few months.
“Republicans are working on a plan that will provide access to all Americans to high quality health insurance, make sure that we increase the quality of insurance that we have in American, and we want to foster a sprit of innovation,” said Boehner on “Fox News Sunday.” “This is a plan we’ll see over the next coming months where we put the patients in charge of their health care.”
Republicans have taken a beating on SCHIP, the $35 billion measure that would expand health insurance for children. The fight quickly turned nasty as Democrats ran campaign ads attacking Republicans who voted against the bill in their home districts.
Should be interesting to see what both parties come up with for health care reform. Perhaps we might actually see some movement toward more coverage for all.
