2009 Comes to a Close With Chances for Health Reform Looking Good

This morning the Senate passed its version of the health care reform bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As we wind down the year here at CCF, comprehensive reform remains closer at hand than at any time in recent history. While the bill is far from perfect, children and their parents have an enormous amount to gain from reform moving forward. (For the full scoop on the latest Senate version, check out CCF’s latest factsheet on all the relevant provisions.) We look forward to the New Year in the hopes that it will bring much needed change to our health care system.

On behalf of CCF we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season. CCF will officially reopen on Monday January 4th.
