It’s come a long way amid all the protests. The bill for Healthcare Reform passed just this past Saturday in the US House of Representatives. It is one of the most hotly debated topics in politics today. What is most controversial to people is the so-called “public option” that would give Americans the option of being covered by government funded insurance. Some people are entirely against healthcare reform, while others (dis)agree with parts of what has been proposed in the bill. It’s difficult to summarize what different sides agree on and don’t agree on because there are a lot of controversies connected to the issue. There are certain groups in the Congress who are at odds over abortion coverage (among other things), for example, while others are concerned about the cost of the bill (if passed) to the government. What do you think? Do you support the healthcare reform bill? – Allyson
