Health care reform critics turn up the attack


The next big hurdle for the universal health care bill will likely be retaining support among coalition members.

Opponents of the bill are attempting to make the case that the Obama administration's health care reforms will result in a reduction in the quality of care for senior citizens. Senior citizens, via Medicare, represent the largest federal health care expense, and most health care analysts argue that the nation's total health care bill cannot be reduced without increased efficiencies and cost reductions in Medicare.
