Update On HCR

HCR = health care reform. One of the reasons I haven't posted any analysis is that I was waiting to see if the Senate would take up the House amendment this week. The Senate bill is now law, but the House amendment was rejected by the Senate under reconciliation rules, so now the House is going to have to do it over.

So I'm going to stick with the Senate bill for now, even though the House amendment would change the numbers. That's why some of what you read here may differ from other sources.

See this morning's post below for interesting stuff!

And as an adjunct to this morning's prior post, see NOFP's post with that nasty CBO US deficit graph.

Update: The Senate passed a revised version of the House amendment and now that goes back to the House. The original Senate bill is now law, but this new amendment will probably be passed by the House very quickly.

Apparently the Senate just passed some sort of "fix" and sent it to the House. I have no idea what's in it.
Neil - the Senate parliamentarian said earlier that the student loan changes weren't within the scope of reconciliation.

So I THINK the Senate just deleted those changes, voted for the rest of it, and now the amended amendment goes back to the House. It does change the scoring but that was all fake anyway.
