GOP Set to Release Their Health Care Plan

Ad Feedback

Republican leaders will release a health care reform plan this weekend that's 100 pages or less.

That's in stark contrast to health care legislation released by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Thursday. That bill has has more than 1,900 pages, weighs more than 19 pounds, and stands nearly nine inches tall.

The House Democrat's bill could cost $1 trillion or more.

Senate Democrats are also working to get their health care bill passed, but they need 60 votes to avoid a Republican filibuster.

"They've become the party of 'No' and if that's what they feel they should be known as, that's what it's gonna be. But we're gonna remind the American people what's taking place here," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said about Republicans.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, believes more Americans need to be in on this process.

"We need to slow down, be careful, let's read the bill, let's show it to the American people, let's get input form our constituents so we don't engage in job-killing policies either intentionally or inadvertently," Cornyn said.

Lawmakers hope to bring both health care bills to the floor for votes in the next few weeks.
