House Vote on ObamaCare Set for Saturday Night
Posted by Print

House Democrats announced today that a vote on Speaker Pelosi’s version of health care “reform” will be held on Saturday night at 6:00, likely when few people are watching.  It is, after all, still college football season.

If the vote succeeds, the House will recess next week and then the ball will be in Senator Harry Reid’s court to pass the Senate’s version of reform. If Reid succeeds, the House and the Senate would meet in conference to reconcile the different provisions in each bill.

During the vote this weekend, the House will also likely vote on a new Republican alternative to ObamaCare.  The Republican bill, 971 pages shorter than ObamaCare, contains provisions that allow consumers to shop across state lines for health insurance.  The Republican alternative also allows small businesses to pool their health plans with other businesses, in an effort to drive down costs.  You can read the alternative to ObamaCare here.

Make sure to call your representative this week at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote “No” on H.R. 3962, Speaker Pelosi’s government-takeover of our health care system.
