Health Reform by Thanksgiving?

As you all know, on Wednesday night, President Obama spoke to a joint session of Congress outlining his health reform plan. In response to this speech, Max Baucus, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee said, the health reform bill his committee has been working on all August will be released the middle of next week and the committee has scheduled a mark-up for Monday, September 21st. Given this information, Vice-President Joe Biden has said that the target date to have health care reform completed by is now Thanksgiving Day, whether this will hold or not however, remains to be seen.

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) has a comprehensive health reform section on their website and information on how the current health reform proposals will impact rural America. I will be including some of the key health reform documents and information here, but you may also access the NRHA site by clicking HERE.
