Senators Close to Health Accord. If it goes through, will this be the first negotiated bi-partisan legislation of the Obama administration?

Three Democrats and three Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee are expected to wrap up their arduous multi-week talks in the coming days, and Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said he expects a panel vote before the Senate recess, which will begin Aug. 7.

  • Charles E. Grassley (Iowa), the ranking Republican on the finance panel.
    Mike Enzi (Wyo.), the senior Republican on the health committee.

    Enzi might bring something to the table... Grassley? Runs hot and cold with me...

  • I am waiting to see the legislation. But, I'm not very hopeful. They seem to be trying to rush this one as well.

  • If this health bill passes it will hardly be bi-partisan since there is a Democratic majority in the house and the senate.
