WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democrats say virtually all of the nation's 50 million uninsured people will be able to get coverage through their health plan.

Democrats introduced their plan Friday, saying they will move quickly to get it through committee and to the House floor. But the final cost was still undetermined and lawmakers were scrambling to find ways to pay for it.

The plan would require individuals to get coverage and employers to contribute. It would also expand the Medicaid program to cover more low-income people.

It would create new insurance purchasing pools that would offer the choice of private coverage as well as a public program.

What do you think is the answer to making sure the 50 million who are uninsured recieve coverage? Tell us what you think!
