Senate Finance Committee Approves "Baucus Health Care Bill" by 14-9 Vote - Video 10/13/09


Here is video of the Senate Finance Committee today voting on the "Baucus Health Care Bill," which passed by a 14-9 vote (voting begins at the 45 second mark of the video). Olympia Snowe was the only Republican to vote for the bill, which now moves out of committee and will go to the full Senate where it will be merged with another bill and altered into some form before the Democrats attempt to bring it to a vote by the full Senate. They will have to decide if they have the 60 votes to invoke cloture, or will forego the ususal cloture process and use the "nuclear option" that requires only 50 votes to pass the Senate.
