Nancy Spillane: Cruel health care bill hits children, seniors in nursing homes

In less than one day, these organizations agree that the new Senate health care bill asks low- and middle-income Americans to spend significantly more for less coverage. The hardest hit will be children, millions living in nursing homes with conditions like Alzheimer's or the aftereffects of a stroke and adults and children with disabilities.

Those who have come out against the Senate health care bill include:

• AARP

• American Academy of Pediatrics

• American Hospital Association

• Federation of American Hospitals
