I am still working my way through the Baucus white paper, and promise a summary soon.
While you wait, Jonathon Gruber has some interesting ideas about health care and economic stimulus (hat tip to Mark Thoma, and copyright the New York Times).
I do not exactly follow some of Gruber's numbers, but it is worth a read, and he clearly understands the there are issues at the state level.
Also, Gruber implies laid off workers can fill the gaps in primary care by becoming nurse practitioners, RNs and physicians assistants. Ah, maybe with five or six years of education, not exactly a short term fix.
