Time for an Up or Down Vote on Health Care Reform

George Wenschhof

This afternoon, from the White House, President Obama made his case for a final vote to approve health care reform. He pointed out important government programs such as COBRA, S-CHIP, and the George W. Bush administration tax cuts for the wealthy passed with a simple majority vote. This statement was a clear signal that "budget reconciliation" will be used in the Senate to pass amendments to the bill put forward by the House.

He called on Congress to finish it's work to provide affordable insurance to 30 million Americans within the next few weeks and said he looked forward to signing the approved health care reform bill.
