The Current State of the Healthcare Debate November 15, 2009

Filed under: Healthcare Reform — Larry E. Stuckey II @ 9:30 pm

So – are you confused about the current state of the healthcare debate?  If you only read one link from this blog, read this one.  It summarizes the current state of the healthcare debate quite well.  Here are the key questions it answers:

1.) What does the Stupak amendment mean?  Does it affect abortion rights? (Note: I believe that it does.  I think the amendment was intended to keep the status quo, i.e. no federal funding for abortions.  However, it goes much farther (read #2 in the linked article above).  One other interesting note . . . the Republican National Committee’s insurance plan covers abortion – the hypocrisy! )

2.) What will the public option be (if anything)?

3.) What happens next?
