Democrats promise action on healthcare bill this fall
Wall Street Journal, September 11, 2009
Democratic congressional leaders have promised action this fall on legislation to overhaul the nation's healthcare system. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., NV) said he hopes legislation can be sent to the White House "well before Thanksgiving." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., CA) added she is "confident the president will sign a bill this year," despite lingering divisions among Democrats on key issues, such as whether to create a government-run health plan to compete with private insurers.
