New Health Care Reform Glossary Published

Citing the need for understanding the language of health care reform and the range of options being promoted, CodeBlueNow! a nonpartisan nonprofit has published a layman's guide to health care reform.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 -- CodeBlueNow!, a nonpartisan, nonprofit seeking to build consensus on health care reform has published a quick and easy guide to the language and key elements of health care reform. Written for the lay reader new to the politics of health care reform this 10 page guide provides a quick, high level overview of some the goals and elements of a 'shared responsibility' model of reform.

"We're going to see a lot of 'spin city' from groups for and against a practical bi-partisan course to reform. Health care reform has been held hostage by two entrenched groups: single payer advocates and marketplace advocates. Both will oppose any solutions that are not their proposals. This means no matter what is finally proposed as a bi-partisan solution will be fiercely fought by the left and the right. To date, there has been no middle voice. We offer this 'glossary' to show what that middle ground could look like," indicates Kathleen O'Connor, Founder, CodeBlueNow!. "It also reflects what our research shows the public would support."
