Democrats put lower priority on health bill

New York Times, January 27, 2010

With no clear path forward on major healthcare legislation, Democratic leaders in Congress said they no longer felt pressure to move quickly on a health bill after eight months of setting deadlines and missing them, the New York Times reports. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, said "There is no rush," and noted that Congress still had most of this year to work on the health bills passed in 2009 by the Senate and the House, the Times reports.
