Health Care Reform Survives Final Vote

"The Congressional Democratic push to overhaul health care is finally, at very long last, done," Roll Call reports.

"House Democrats voted 220-207 Thursday night to approve a package of fixes to the underlying law after the Senate made two minor changes to the version the House first passed on Sunday night. Thirty-two Democrats voted 'no.' The reconciliation package now heads to President Barack Obama for his signature."

"The package makes a number of changes to the Senate-authored health care overhaul demanded by House Democrats. It dramatically scales back and delays until 2018 a tax on high-cost "Cadillac" insurance plans, strikes some special deals cut with individual Senators, boosts affordability credits, and adds a revamp of the student-loan industry."
