Health care reform update

As I’m sure you know, the House passed the Senate health care reform bill (H.R. 3590) late last night by a 219-212 margin. The House then approved the reconciliation bill amending the Senate bill (H.R. 4872) by a 220-211 margin.  The President is expected to sign H.R. 3590 into law tomorrow and then the Senate will consider H.R. 4872 under its budget reconciliation rules. At this point we can only be certain that the Senate bill will become law tomorrow.

Here is a link to a Wall Street Journal / Kaiser Family Foundation side by side of the Senate bill, the reconciliation bill, the House bill, and the President’s proposal.
