GOP set to propose its own health bill

Wall Street Journal, November 2, 2009

Republicans are preparing an alternative healthcare bill to Democratic legislation, House Republican Leader John Boehner announced. Boehner said the Republican bill would extend health-insurance coverage to "millions" of Americans but wouldn't try to match the scope of the House Democratic bill unveiled last week. The GOP plan would likely be less costly to taxpayers and involve less government intrusion into the private sector. Boehner said the bill would take "a step-by-step approach" to expanding coverage. It would, among other things, propose new limits on medical malpractice lawsuits and make it easier for individuals and small businesses to pool resources to purchase insurance.
