Health care changes are moving along _ if not smoothly _ in Washington.
Today, a deal with the hospitals.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s hospitals will give up $155 billion in
future Medicare and Medicaid payments to help defray the cost of President
Barack Obama’s health care plan, a concession the White House hopes will boost
an overhaul effort that’s hit a roadblock in Congress.
Vice President Joe Biden announced the deal at the
White House on Wednesday, with administration officials and hospital
administrators at his side.
Tomorrow, former Gov. Howard Dean will hold a telephonic press conference to urge Vermonters to back what's going on in Washington.
