Senators progress as House delays again on health bill

New York Times, July 28, 2009

Meanwhile, members of the Senate Finance Committee, who have been engaged in the delicate talks, said they had moved ahead on how to pay for the health plan and fleshed out alternatives to requiring employers to provide health insurance, which has been a sticking point with many Republicans and business owners.
