Health care reform delayed but still on track for passage by year's end


While most Americans support the idea of change in our health care system, the House and Senate have yet to agree on how exactly the change will occur and who will pay for it. Five committees, three in the House and two in the Senate, have had their say in drafting the legislation, and we're now down to two committees -- the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Finance Committee -- to work out the final details before the bill will be brought to the floor for a vote.

The House may vote before the August recess, but Senate Leader Harry Reid says there will be no Senate health care vote until the fall. He does, however, expect the Senate Finance Committee to finish its work before the recess.
