Now that the healthcare bill has passed from the House to the Senate, debate will be heating up on the topic. Will the Senate pass the House Bill?

Politico is reporting that the Senate plans to start over and write its own version of the healthcare bill. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said, “We’re writing a Senate bill and not passing the House bill. We’ll take whatever good ideas we find there that meet our goals.”

The GOP needs 50 votes of the 52 senators for passage. Expect debate to begin after the CBO scores the bill and details how many people will lose healthcare coverage under the House plan.

How does this affect me?

This debate is far from over. Now is the time to reach out to your Senators with your opinions on the bill and what you would like to see happen to healthcare in America.
