If you've tuned into any of the Town Hall meetings, you've seen people hoisting all 1,018 pages of "The Bill" and demanding to know if anyone has read it.

That's HR 3200, the House version of the plan, dated July 14, 2009.

And the answer is no. Almost nobody has read it, including your Congressional representatives, because it's written in a mind-numbing language intelligible only to the drones who work behind the scenes on Capitol Hill.

(Sample: With respect to the basic plan offered by the entity, the entity shall contract for outpatient services with covered entities (as defined in section 340B(a)(4) of the Public Health Service Act, as in effect as of July 1, 2009).

But if you insist, click here to see HR 3200.

For a much more readable 35-page version, see the Section-By-Section Analysis It's not really an analysis. It's a summary of the House bill.

The House Ways and Means Committee has an entire menu of information on the bill on its site It's not spin-free, but it's in English.

A summary of the version of the bill that was approved by the Senate Health Committee on July 15 also is available.

President Obama asked Congress to take the lead on writing the health care reform bill, but he is by no means silent on the issue. The White House has its own Health Reform site.
