House Passes Health Care Bill
Congress just passed the Senate's health care bill 219 to 212.
The bill will require most Americans to have health insurance, it would subsidize private coverage for low- and middle-income people, and add 16 million people to Medicaid, according to The New York Times. It will cost the government $938 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Earlier today, Rep. Bart Stupak announced his support for the bill, and President Obama will sign an executive order on abortion language.
