Reid says health bill will be done by Christmas

New York Times, November 11, 2009

The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, said that he expected to bring major healthcare legislation to the floor next week and to complete work on the bill before Christmas. But other Democratic leaders said it was unlikely that a bill could reach President Obama's desk by year’s end, the New York Times reports. Reid still has not finalized the Senate version of the legislation. He is waiting for additional analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, with a goal of keeping the 10-year cost of the bill at the roughly $900 billion suggested by President Obama.
