President Obama hopes 2010 will be the year that health care restructuring legislation is passed by Congress. Senate passage of a reform bill on Christmas Eve increases the likelihood it will happen. A conference committee still must reconcile differences between the House of Representatives bill passed last November and the Senate measure. One contains a public option, one doesn't. One places higher taxes on private insurers, the other passes the cost to the wealthy with so called "Cadillac plans." Monday morning at 9, Dan Moulthrop and guests talk about how the bills may affect northeast Ohioans - who will be covered, what will be covered and how much it'll cost.
