Pelosi vows passage of healthcare overhaul

Washington Post, July 27, 2009

Defying skeptics in her party, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed to overcome lingering obstacles and pass healthcare reform in the House. The speaker plans to restart talks today among bickering Democrats on the Energy and Commerce Committee, one of three House panels with jurisdiction over healthcare and where the bill stalled last week. Democratic leaders are newly confident that these differences can be resolved, possibly in time to bring a House bill to the floor before lawmakers depart Friday for the August recess, although Pelosi did not commit to a timetable.
