Final Sunday Health Care Bill Vote: 219 YES, 212 NO, Health Care Bill Has Passed
Rep. Stupak made a deal with the White House earlier, and will be voting for the health care reform bill. Before the final vote started, John Boehner once again requested that every representative cast their vote one by one, but the request was denied. The voting for the health care bill that was passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve, HR 3590, begins. The House still has other votes ahead, including voting on its reconciliation bill. ProPublica did a side-by-side comparison of the Senate bill and House revisions and posted it late last week so that you can view the changes.
