Weekly Recap:

New Senate Bill: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced a health-care reform bill on Wednesday that would extend health insurance to more than 30 million Americans at a cost of $849 billion over 10 years. Mr. Reid claims that the bill would reduce the federal deficit by $127 billion over the next 10 years and by over $600 billion in the following decade. Republicans have promised to block the bill by threatening a filibuster. To avoid this, Mr. Reid needs 60 votes (of 100 total) to get the bill to a debate. The vote will be held this Saturday.

House Cancels Medicare Pay Cuts: The House voted on Thursday to cancel a 21% pay cut for doctors who treat Medicare patients. The bill was passed mostly along party lines with a vote of 243-184. Republicans are furious, alleging that the passage is political quid pro quo for AMA backing the House health care reform bill. Republicans also state that the $210 billion cost of the bill is not offset by other spending cuts or tax increases. With the Senate already rejecting a similar bill, what happens next is anyone’s guess. (source: NPR)
