HHS Actuary Says House Bill Will Increase Health Spending

Yesterday, the Chief Actuary at the Department of Health and Human Services, Rick Foster, issued a lengthy memorandum (available here in PDF format) analyzing the House version of health-care reform. The memo makes several devastating points about the House, not the least of which is that it would increase overall national health spending, not reduce it. I will have much more to say about this memo shortly.
