SustiNet Gets a Hearing

The health care proposal SustiNet (read about it here) was the subject of a public hearing today. CTNJ has the details.

Arguments in favor include that it will actually help drive down the cost of health insurance, as well as doing the obvious of providing health coverage for people who need it.

Arguments against, which came from CBIA among others, included the old saws about the evils of completely government-run health care–which CBIA sees SustiNet as being a step towards. Another argument was about a section of the plan dealing with medical malpractice.

Read the article–SustiNet is sure to be a topic of conversation in the future.
