Panel might revise healthcare bill

New York Times, June 22, 2009

Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa said that the Senate Finace Committee would consider revisiting its version of healthcare legislation to gain more support. An initial price tag for the Senate Finance Committee's healthcare proposal came to $1.6 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. That figure caused enough consternation that the chairman postponed a drafting session that was to have begun this week. The Finance Committee's plan is expected to attract more bipartisan support than legislation being written by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
