Senate Finance Committee to Vote Today on "Baucus Bill"; GOP's Olympia Snowe Likely to Vote in Favor - Video 10/13/09
Here is a video report on the coming vote today by the Senate Finance Committee on the "Baucus Health Care Bill." The report says Obama views this as an "important step" in the process of getting Health Care Reform, and they are most concerned about getting the vote of Republican Olympia Snowe so they can call it "bipartisan." They seem to believe Snowe is likely to vote in favor of the bill.
Republicans say this bill is "irrelevant," because it is only intended to move the debate to the full Senate where the legislation will change radically, so that the "Baucus bill" is not really what will eventually be put forward.
