More News from the White House on Health Reform

March 3, 2010

Today, President Obama set the tone for the final work Congress must take in order to pass comprehensive national health care reform!  His speech is available to read here.

The President acknowledges the difficult problem of enacting reform in terms of policy- the complicated system of health care now in America lends to many inter-related changes- and politics- utilizing the simple majority vote of reconciliation in the Senate to finally pass the legislation.

In the coming weeks we should see:

  • The Senate promise the House to use reconciliation to pass provisions that the House would like,
  • The House to then pass the Senate’s version of the bill, and
  • The last step, the Senate to use reconciliation as the final step of bringing the bills into one piece of legislation for the President to sign.
