WMUR tackles downshifting in Health Care Bill

WMUR's Josh McElveen reports on opposition to the Pelosi Health Care Bill because of its reliance on state budgets to pay for many of its mandates.
The question of what it could cost states has piqued Gov. John Lynch's interest. He spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about his concerns last week.

Analysts said they believe governors will play a major role in health care reform before anything is passed.

"There's little question that the current bill does cost-shift to the states," said Charlie Arlinghaus of the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy. "The question is how much. So, I think you are going to see some pressure to try and eliminate some of that cost shifting."
