Health Reform

There are potential changes afoot with respect to health care in the United States. On the one hand, you might examine the latest plans set forth from the White House. You might also examine the Republican perspective, thereby gaining a well-rounded view on both sides of this contentious issue.

For all you future policy wonks -- and I know you're out there! -- nothing talks like numbers.

You could look at this lovely collection of U.S. health-related budget data from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. Or perhaps you are looking for data on a particular thing, such as emergency department visits: click here to figure out exactly what source has the data you want.
