What Will Health Care Reform Do For You? -- Kansas Statistics

Posted: Updated:

Last week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee released district by district reports on the Affordable Health Choices Act being worked on in Congress. The results are incredibly encouraging for health care reform advocates because current legislation is estimated to both reduce costs and increase access to thousands of Kansans.

That's why I wanted to pass along some of the data...
