Health care reform: how the new bill affects doctors and small business owners

The World

Last night the House of Representatives voted on an historic national health insurance reform bill. A hundred years in the making, this is going to have deep and lasting effects on every man, woman and child in America.

We get three takes from people who stand to have their lives and livelihoods changed forever by this reform: John Brown is the vice president of Brown Furniture Company in Shawnee, Okla. Michael Pramenko is president-elect of Colorado Medical Society and a family physician in Grand Junction, Colo. And Dr. Herbert Pardes is president and CEO of New York Presbyterian Hospital.
