Alaska’s Republican Congressman Don Young says the health care bill proposed by House Democrats on Thursday is expensive and won’t give Americans better health insurance. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California unveiled Democrats’ 894 Billion dollar package on the steps of the US Capitol today. It would expand Medicaid and includes a government insurance option. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said in a preliminary report that the bill would trim more than 100 billion dollars from projected budget deficits over the next decade. But Representative Young says the price tag is too steep.
