Post your comment: Would health care reform benefit local governments?
The debate over health care reform continues to rage as Congress is in recess. In early August, the Washington-based National League of Cities commended President Obama and members of Congress for pursuing the reform, saying cities and towns spend more than $87 billion each year, or nearly 17 percent of their budgets, for health care benefits for their employees, retirees and their families.
Do you think the health care legislation now under consideration will benefit cities and counties?
