The HELP committee passes health care bill and the House committee releases language
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee has passed America’s Affordable Health Choices Act on party lines 13 to 10. After twelve days of committee mark-up, the bill will now go on to the Senate floor for arguments. In other news, the House Tri-Committee (Education & Labor, Ways & Means, and Energy & Commerce) have released the finalized language of their bill. They’ll begin mark-up soon, and we’re still waiting on language from the Senate Finance Committee.
