Revised list of reform summaries

for what its worth, here is a list of some of the best summaries that I have seen on the reform bill.  I have ordered them in terms of my assessment of their usefulness.  As indicated, I think it crucial to put together a comprehensive communications strategy to turn around the polls and ensure that future sessions of congress do not kill this bill.  The only key piece missing is debunking the false myths, such as death panels, government takeover, coming between doctor and patient, etc. 

1) 1) times magazine


this is the best package, has a simple set of charts, plus a good article on the cost efficiency issues which has been missing for the most part from other reviews.

2) kaiser summary


3)  consumer reports

4) another useful source plus summary of sources


this site is operated by USHHS

5) http://www.unionvoice.org/afgerocks/notice-description.tcl?newsletter_id=29612357

afge review of benefits of new law, very nice summary.

6)  white house 

this is a good set of fact sheets from the white house, even though I would like to see more issues covered.

7) kiplinger

kiplinger has a nice article on impact of reform on retirees
