Wondering what that health care reform bill really says? Not sure about universal government-provided health care? Now the Government Printing Office (GPO) has published an authenticated copy of the bill, (H.R. 3200), America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, on its Federal Digital System web site.
GPO has authenticated the copy of the bill by digital signature. GPO states that the digital signature "assures the public that the document has not been changed or altered. A digital signature, viewed through the GPO Seal of Authenticity verifies the document's integrity and authenticity."
The bill has been approved by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, but has not yet been debated by the full House. Formal debate on the bill will not start until Congress returns from its Labor Day recess on September 8. As you read the GPO's authenticated copy of the bill, remember that many amendments to it are likely.
