29 Dec Update: Senate Passes Health Care Bill
Due to our break for the Christmas holiday, we failed to report on the final Senate vote for the pro-abortion health care bill a little earlier. Sorry for the delay.
But the Senate bill did indeed pass the Christmas Eve vote, with a 60-39 margin. The vote fell straight down party lines.
The Senate’s bill must now be reconciled with the House bill, which includes the pro-life Stupak Amendment that truly prevents taxpayer dollars from funding abortion insurance. It is anyone’s guess which amendment will be included in the final bill.
When Congress returns in January, we will keep you updated as the debates develop.
