Last night, Nina Owcharenko, Deputy Director of the Center for Health Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation went into the ‘No Spin Zone’ to discuss with Bill O’Reilly the specifics of Senator Max Baucus’ (D-MT) newly unveiled Health Care Reform legislation.
As Nina puts it: “Well, actually it has the same fundamental problems that the other bills making their way through Congress have. It’s got a public plan. Baucus just calls it a co-op. It’s got massive federal regulation over insurance and benefits, a massive Medicaid expansion, and an employer mandate and an individual mandate. Those are the structural flaws that all the bills carry, and that actually break the promises that the President has said he would do for the American people.”
