Delays, Disputes Slow Progess of Health Care Bill

Ad Feedback

President Obama's health care plan is meeting with resistance in Congress.

Republicans say it is a huge government bureaucracy, and even some Democrats are balking at the cost.
On Wednesday, the Senate Finance Committee was supposed to announce its plan to pay for health care reform.

That has been delayed until after the July 4 holiday.

This is because the plan is even more expensive than anticipated.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the plan is about $1.6 trillion over four years.

Also, on Tuesday, House Republicans unveiled their own set of proposals to reform health care.

They say their plan will cost a lot less, and will not be a government-run or managed approach.
