Senate Committee to Vote Soon on HC Reform

Ad Feedback

The Senate Finance Committee is set for a final vote on health care legislation Tuesday.

The vote will come after the Congressional Budget Office figures out exactly how much the reform will cost.

Republicans are against the plan, saying it amounts to major cuts in Medicare and billions of dollars in taxes.

After not submitting their own comprehensive plan, some prominent GOP leaders now fear they are being tagged the "party of no."

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who's seen as a a potential GOP presidential contender in 2012, said it's time for Republicans "to pivot and say, in addition to emphasizing what we oppose, here are our proposals" for health care.

The bill could go to the Senate floor for full debate by the middle of October.
