Health Care Reformed

H.R. 3962, the Health Care Reform Bill, Passes the House

On Nov. 7, 2009, the House passed H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act by a vote of 220-215.  One Republican, Joseph Cao (R-LA), voted in favor of the bill.  The bill will incorporate the Stupak-Pitts amendment, which bans use of federal funding for abortion and prohibits the public option from covering abortion services.

This is a sucess but not the end of this fight.  This bill needs to marry up with a bill in the Senate and then be reconciled and passed again in both houses.  We much watch carefully.
