Congressman John Spratt: What was Sunday night in the U.S. House like?

From Our Friends at Georgetown

It’s been a historic week for health care reform, most notably with the President’s signature on the Congress-approved health care bill (H.R. 3590). The legislative (with the companion bill of amendments currently waiting Senate approval) will provide health coverage to 32 million uninsured individuals.

With the key elements of health reform now law, here is a resource  to help navigate the changes:

CCF released a fact sheet on the key Medicaid, CHIP, and low-income provisions in the health care reform package, including the proposed changes in the reconciliation bill.

What does the health care bill mean to me?

The health-care overhaul will change the way millions of Americans get health insurance and require nearly everyone to have health insurance or face penalties. A number of factors – including income, age, location and family size – will determine how it specifically impacts your life. This tool looks at what it could mean for your health coverage and taxes based on your income, family size and current insurance status.

See how the Bill will impact your life.
