Senate Passes Health Care Reform Bill on Christmas Eve

Posted December, 28 2009 by arianne

 The Senate passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Thursday morning, with a vote of 60-39. The Senate and House leadership will now begin working on putting together a conference committee bill. The process of working out a compromise and passing the final bill through the House and Senate may take a month or more.
