Finance chair Max Baucus says he will proceed with a formal proposal despite not having reached a bipartisan deal.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A bill on health care reform will reportedly be advanced to be deliberated on next week despite negotiators in the Senate Finance Committee having yet to reach a bipartisan deal. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Finance Committee Chair, Max Baucus, expressed his intentions on pressing forward Tuesday after months of negotiations.
As noted by the AP, the proposal expected to be unveiled will include a cost of less than $900 billion over ten years. The Massachusetts legislature may soon begin to vote on a bill that would allow someone to be appointed as the late Sen.
