Sunday, March 21st marked a long, tense and historic day for democrats, republicans and citizens of the United States of America. The vote on health care reform was history in the making for the US House. The United States House of Representatives voted in favor of health care reform by a vote of 219-212 with Republicans unanimous in opposition. Many believe that this is a groundbreaking victory for President Obama and the many supporters who fought hard to get the Health Care Reform bill passed. The bill covers 32 million uninsured Americans but the downside are the costs associated with it. The only thing that both sides can agree to is that this is history in the making.
The debate on whether to pass or deny the HCR bill has both sides so divided that while watching C-Span last night I was certain a fight would erupt from all of the tension in the room.
With the HCR bill passed, how will it work? How will this bill effect us and what does it mean?
