Hill Report: Senate and House To Begin Discussion on Final Health Care Reform Bill
While Santa was delivering toys to all the good girls and boys, the US Senate was busy voting on their health reform bill. The final vote on partisan lines was 60 in favor to 39 opposed. The 60 vote win for Majority Leader Harry Reid came after several deals were cut with specific Senators to ensure their favorable vote. This process is far from over and the real battles will begin right after the new year. Here is a great run down on the differences between the two bills compliments of NACS Online and a very cool interactive model from Boston Globe.
