Hill Report: Health Care Reform Update

Just a quick re-cap on the bill tonight.

The House is voting on the Senate bill which passed the Senate in December of 2009. That was a Christmas Eve vote.

The House needs 216 votes to get this bill passed. Looks like according to Speaker Pelosi she has the votes.

There will be two votes. One on the bill the Senate passed and the second on the reconciliation bill.

CNN is reporting that after the vote the president will speak to America.

The bill will then return to the Senate tomorrow, according to insiders. There will be more debate.

Media reports are saying that we are looking at President Obama signing the bill into law by the end of the week.
