SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE PASSES HEALTH CARE REFORM BILL Senate Finance Committee Passes Health Care Reform Bill
Senate inches closer to floor debate.

On Tuesday, after months of bipartisan negotiations, the Senate Finance Committee reported its bill out of committee in a 14-9 vote. Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) joined all committee Democrats in supporting the bill while the remaining committee Republicans voted against the bill. Snowe’s affirmative vote marks the first time a Republican has supported a Democratic health care reform bill in committee. Her vote also gives Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) a significant boost as negotiations progress with Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) over the contents of the yet-to-be-merged Senate bill. Senator Dodd is representing the HELP Committee, which reported its bill out of committee on a party line vote in mid-July.

Key sticking points in fusing the two Senate bills include whether or not to include a public option or a variation thereof, the scope of an employer mandate, the penalty level for the individual mandate and new taxes on Cadillac plans as well as the health insurance industry. Negotiations are expected to ensue for the next several days in hopes of having the merged bill on the Senate floor in late October.

With the Finance Committee’s proceedings concluded, all five congressional committees with jurisdiction over health care reform have now reported legislation out of their respective committees. The House Democratic Leadership is also continuing to work on its  bill with the goal of having it on the House floor by late October or early November.

Testimonials
Helped with claim & never had I felt so at ease!!! I just had to write this review as I have never been treated so well than I have with this agency. I commend your staff (Diane, Mary, Kate, Irene and Patrick! From day one when my oldest son had a problem and needed special coverage (sr22) - your staff did everything my current agent wouldn't! I have NEVER felt so at ease when she told me that your agency could work with my son and I. Your agency has always gone above and beyond - we were treated in a fair, comforting way, and I always get a warm feeling knowing that everything would be taken care of for me and my family if we were in an accident or had a problem. We moved all of our insurance to your agency from a company in Andover that did nothing for us. Matter of fact, they turned their backs on us when I requested an SR 22 for my son. Truth have it, my ex insurance agent from that company has been my next door neighbor for over 25 years! What I received from your agency was a total 180 degrees different from what I received ...

You have a class operation and the staff shows that everytime I walk into your office or call. It is not often these days that you can find real personal service - but your staff does personal service as second nature. GREAT JOB!! I would recommend this agency to ANYONE!
