Report: House Health Care Bill Unveiled Tomorrow

Congressional Quarterly/Newscom

Rumors have been swirling all day, and now ABC is reporting that House leaders will unveil their health care bill at a morning press conference tomorrow.

Of the specifics that were still up in the air, the bill reportedly: will not include a robust public option, as recent signs have been indicating; will cost about $900 billion–in line with President Obama’s mark; will cover several million more people than the Senate Finance Committee’s bill will; and will be paid for, in large part, with a 5.4 percent surtax on high income families and individuals.

Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
