Reform Update: House Vote To Come Saturday

05 Nov

Having introduced the House health reform bill, H.R. 3962, this week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has scheduled a floor vote to take place on Saturday. This quick push is wholly deliberate: Pelosi and others are concerned about the possibility of the bill stalling over contentious issues like abortion coverage and the introduction by Rep. Boehner of a GOP-reform bill.

At this point, the outcome is anything but assured, as there remains a great deal of infighting among Democrats themselves. Any way you slice it, though, this is exciting stuff. I don’t usually recommend it, but you should probably check out C-SPAN or at the very least the news on Saturday. You just might see another step taken in the direction of making history.
