    H.R. 4037 dealing with Comprehensive Literacy is a  bill recently brought before the House by Rep's Polis of Colorado and Miller of California.

    It has been referred to the Education and Labor Committee, but the bill does have interesting implications for next week's H.R. 3590 debate in the Senate.

    For example, Title V section 5001 of H.R. 3590 which proposes reforms in the Health Care Workforce, parallel section 3 paragraphs (D) and (E) dealing with effective educational environments  and improving student achievement and retention.

    We  can cross reference the above motions with section 12, paragraph 12 of H.R. 4037 proposing a system of multi tiered support systems as well as Section 8 describing possible Apprenticeship Programs.

    When we do, we see that the measures proposed in H.R. 3590 Title IX Subtitle A and section 3401 of Subtitle A dealing with issues of productivity point to Literacy as an integral part of the market reform proposals throughout H.R. 3590.

    This increase in the quality of a young Health Care Workforce will immediately translate into a real positive offset.

    Moreover, by increasing Health Care Workforce quality, that will also effect the risk profile of Health Care Quality discussed on page 692 of H.R. 3560 part S by helping to develop a  new updated contemporary default risk score which means, less cost.

    That means, when we take steps to insure Literacy (H.R. 4037) applied in the health care work force(H.R.3590) we are looking at a stronger, more efficient and much more affordable overall system.

    There are many more parallels between the two bills.

    The point is when we think about the success of The Public Option, I feel H.R. 3590 is proposing there be a Grass Roots Infrastructure to supplement Federal Law.

    When we Combine this perspective with The Child and Adult Literacy Initiative proposed by H.R. 4037, many more Americans in cities and rural areas will be much better equipped to create their own local, regional or state Affordable Public Option as integral self sustaining components of the State or Regional Health Care Exchanges from which they will develop.

    I have read all the available Literature and this route is the best and most affordable way to go.
