CBO: Health Bill Will Reduce Deficit, Cost $940 Billion Over Next Decade

Kaiser Health News offers the roundup of coverage, which also lays out the end-game for a vote on the bill, which could come as soon as Sunday.

This program aired on March 18, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
