As the House takes up tax cuts, the Senate will take on competing health care reform proposals, one named The Patients' Bill of Rights and the other named The Patients' Bill of Rights Plus Act.

The Patients' Bill of Rights, introduced by Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., would expand the ability of patients to sue their health plan and expose employers to greater liability. It would also introduce more mandates on coverage, increasing the cost of health care. The high cost of health care is already the number one concern of small business owners.
