America Begins to Learn How Much Health-Care Reform to Cost

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , the San Francisco Democrat, is trying to rally her caucus behind complex legislation to overhaul the nation’s healthcare system, President Obama ’s top domestic priority.

It has not been easy. Since senior House Democrats introduced their healthcare bill this week, moderates, freshmen lawmakers and others in the party have expressed concerns about provisions to tax the wealthy, and have demanded more savings and complained about the speed with which the bill is moving, Los Angeles Times reports.

Meanwhile, a group of anti-abortion Democrats opposed to U.S. House health-care legislation in its current form have emerged as a major obstacle to Democratic leaders' goal of passing the measure by August.

A group of 20 House Democrats signed a letter sent Friday to House Democratic leaders stating they "cannot support any health care reform proposal unless it explicitly excludes abortion from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan." ,Wall Street Journal reports.

It's full steam ahead for ObamaCare -- the radical health-care "reform" package that Congressional Democrats are trying to steamroll to passage by the end of the summer. And now America is beginning to learn how much it will cost -- and who'll pay the tab, Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
