Make healthcare more affordable, Michigan Dems say
Detroit Free Press, May 11, 2009
With health insurance costs and the number of uninsured people rising, Michigan House Democrats are to introduce proposals that aim to make health coverage more affordable and to expand government programs for lower-income children and adults. Republicans are to introduce their own proposals later in the week that center on expanding public insurance plans to cover more people. The bills come after the Legislature failed to reach an agreement last year after more than two years of hearings about how to change Michigan's health insurance market.
