Health Reform Update: Out of the House

The bill passed the house. It was close but it is done. The only downside is they tacked on a really ugly anti-choice amendment that basically says, if you are on the public option, you must pay for an abortion out of pocket. Hopefully, behind the scenes, they will strip that out of the bill.

So the bill passed the house. Now it goes over to the Senate, where they will hopefully schedule a vote in the next week. Then we will see if there is a filibuster or something exciting, but if all goes as planned, the bill should be on Obama’s desk in a coupe of weeks and signed by the end of the year.
