As Health Reform Summit Looms, Battle Lines Are Drawn
Date:2/25/2010

to pass health reform, premiums will skyrocket, millions will join the ranks of the uninsured, small businesses will drop health coverage, people will continue to be denied coverage as a result of preexisting conditions, seniors will face a larger and larger gap in prescription drug coverage," Pollack said. "The cost of doing nothing is enormous."

As for the public, many Americans favor some sort of reform, but there is wide disagreement and even confusion on what form it should take. A poll by Harris Interactive/HealthDay earlier this month found that half of Americans want some kind of health reform in the next two years, but about 40 percent were not in favor of the legislation proposed by the Democrats.
