Statistics on health reform by congressional district

WASHINGTON — Aiming to target representatives who might still be on the fence on health care reform, Democrats have released district-by-district figures of exactly what impact they say health reform will have.

The statistics were compiled by the House Energy and Commerce Committee and then promoted by several groups, including the White House.

The breakdown for Minnesota representatives, listed district-by-district, can be found by following the links below. Obvious caveat here: The figures seem to square with previous estimates, but note that the folks who put this out want the health care bill to pass.

The list below is organized by district and, for clarity, I’ve included the most recent indication of how the representative plans to vote on the latest health reform bill.

The breakdowns for every district nationwide can be found here.

Note: This post has been updated to clarify that the E&C Committee originated the report.

    Hey Dan,

    Just checked back with Oberstar’s office two minutes ago (3:38 p.m. Central), and he’s still leaning yes. He wants to see the final text of the bill before making a final decision.

    Here’s his position, from my report this AM:

    “Rep. Jim Oberstar is now “leaning yes,” said spokesman John Schadl, adding that Oberstar wants to vote for health reform but still has concerns over abortion language and Medicare reimbursement rates. Reports that he’s a solid yes are inaccurate, Schadl said, because Oberstar won’t commit his vote before looking at the legislative language.”

    Thanks for reading,

    Not sure which of the Dakotas you’re looking for, but here’s the Washington Post’s analysis of where folks are leaning:

    Pomeroy (ND) is listed as undecided. Herseth Sandlin (SD) is listed as a no.

    Gosh you’re prompt and sorry for any misreading. You should have an editor send Haga (?) out to get the Herseth story sorry to see it. Keep up the good work!
