AUGUSTA, Maine — Add Maine U.S. Congressman Mike Michaud to the list of those saying the debate over health care in Washington is far from other.

Michaud said following Senate passage this week of sweeping health care reform legislation, a lot of work remains to be done to reconcile the Senate and House versions of the bill.

Michaud says he hopes the best features of both versions can be fashioned into a final product and says Congress needs to take the time to get the legislation right and not rush it.
