The House of Representatives on Saturday night passed a sweeping health care bill by a vote of 220-215.
Earlier, the House passed an amendment to pending health care legislation that prohibits federal funds for abortion services in the public option and in the insurance "exchange" the bill would create.
The vote passed 240-194.
AMEN. It's about time - I haven't had time to run through the bill and read every tiny amendment and piece of bullshit they tacked on it, but if it has a public option and everyone is finally guaranteed healthcare, this is a step in the right direction.
