District by District Impact of Health Reform Bill

Kos flags an invaluable resource for explaining the benefits of the House version of the Democratic health care reform bill — for every congressional district. The House Committee on Energy and Commerce provides the link, “H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, District by District Impact,” which should be of interest to local activists, candidates and journalists. Each of the 435 links has localized statistics measuring the health and economic effects of the bill including: the number of uninsured who get covered; the number of small businesses that get tax credits and the percentage of households that will pay a surtax, among other pertinent district-wide statistics.
For those who want to get up to speed on the legislation, The Examiner provides a summary of the bill’s key provisions here.
