Health Care: Long Slog Ahead

Jul 29, 2009 9:19pm

The President said today that in the “best-case scenario,” a health care reform bill will not get voted on or signed until mid-fall. 

But key negotiators on both the House and Senate sides told me today that I shouldn't be surprised if the deal didn't get this settled until Christmas.  There was some progress on the House side where a deal was struck with the seven moderate Blue Dog Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  

Watch here to find out what they agreed on and for the good news Senate negotiators got from the Congressional Budget Office.
