House Stimulus Plan Would Provide Health Care to 8.2 Million

7 million adults and dependent children would get the subsidized COBRA by the end of this year, the CBO told Pelosi in a letter available on their web site. Another 1.2 million people also would get health coverage under the House stimulus, the CBO said, thanks to a provision that secures Medicaid coverage for low-income workers who lose their jobs and have no other option.

Unfortunately, the Senate didn't touch the Medicaid issue in their stimulus. And something tells me senators won't be eager to debate the health care benefits in the two competing bills, because it's a fight the House will win.
