Senate panel takes careful approach to crafting health bill

Washington Post, July 22, 2009

Senate Finance Committee members say they are trying to resolve potential healthcare reform controversies behind closed doors and produce a bill that can withstand the close scrutiny. Senior panel members have expressed confidence that they could complete committee action on such a bill before President Obama's Aug. 7 deadline and attract significant bipartisan support. The measure would meet President Obama's goal of expanding coverage while lowering long-term health costs, without relying on a surtax on wealthy households as the House's bill would impose.
