Bush's health plan doesn't produce claimed results.

And Kerry's will almost undoubtedly cost more -- as much as $300 billion more -- that his campaign's estimate of $653 billion over 10 years. That's what the experts, including those at the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, are saying, according to an article in yesterday's Washington Post by Ceci Connelly, whose reporting on the political side of health issues continues to be the best around.

Speaking of the CBO, there's a good article about its new director, who is catching some flak from his former bosses at the White House for publishing studies that don't toe the party line, in today's N.Y. Times.
