Health Bill Is 1,502 Pages Long (This Version)

Senate Finance Committee members have been notified that the committee's health reform bill has been filed today. S. 1796 is 1,502 pages long.

Here it is.

So far, we know it contains a 40 percent tax on high-end insurance plans.

Next comes the merger of this bill with the one out of the Health Committee.

Keep in mind what insurance industry analyst Robert Laszewski has said:
There are going to be a lot of denials. I am not setting insurance companies up to be villains. But we are telling them to bend the cost curve. How else are they going to bend the cost curve?
