After a year of wrangling, the showdown on health care is set for Sunday.
Some of the bill’s features include:
Cost: $940 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
How many covered: 32 million uninsured. Major coverage expansion begins in 2014. When fully phased in, 95 percent of eligible Americans would have coverage, compared with 83 percent today.
Insurance mandate: Almost everyone is required to be insured or else pay a fine. There is an exemption for low-income people. Takes effect in 2014.
