Health Care Reform Passed
by Nathan Empsall, Sun Mar 21, 2010 at 10:51:19 PM EDT
219-212, a seven vote margin. That's two votes more than last year's 220-215.
30 million insured, the deficit lowered by billions, the most historic bill since the Civil Rights movement, and the apex of a hundred-year slog started by Theodore Roosvelt.
Passed. To the President. Law. Two more votes.
Update: Reconciliation passes, 220-211. I wonder who it picked up - what Blue Dog would vote for the more liberal reconciliation but not the main bill? Over to you, Harry Reid, for passage next week. What a night.
The House is now adjourned.
