20. Quick take on HELP:
Anyone earning up to 150 percent of the FPL ($33,000 for a family of four) would be eligible for Medicaid; the bill also expands S-CHIP to cover people up to age 26, from age 18.

That alone will take an enormous bite out of the uninsured. And there's a public option.

HELP is Teddy Kennedy's bill. More details here. Unless you're a single-payer-or-wait-another-generation type, it's just about the best bill out there.
