House passes health care reform

The House passed two health care reform bills late Sunday night, sending the Senate bill (HR 3590) to president Obama’s desk and sending a reconciliation bill (HR 4872) to the Senate.

On Saturday, House leaders decided not to use the “deem and pass” method for approving the Senate bill, but instead called a straight up or down vote. For those who were still not satisfied with the Senate language on abortion, a compromise was reached involving an executive order. Read more.

Next the reconciliation bill goes to the Senate, where leaders are promising to pass it this week.
