Baucus Senate health bill REDUCES deficit $81 billion

The Congressional Budget Office says the Senate Finance Committee Health Care Plan would cost $829 billion over the next ten years but REDUCE the deficit by $81 billion. The percentage of legal non-elderly residents with insurance would increase from 83% today to 94% in 2019. However 25 million Americans would still be uninsured. About 1/3 of the uninsured would be illegal immigrants.
