Seismic Shift in Health Reform Shadows

The Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) projects the Senate Manager's Amendment will cover millions more Americans. Congressional Budget Office projections (with some digging) reveal a more sinister number. The two are below:

34 million currently without coverage will get it (CMS)

35.3 million will lose employer sponsored health insurance (CBO)

The first number is widely broadcast, the latter a virtual secret.
