The long-awaited Senate Finance Committee health care bill is out

The long-awaited Senate Finance Committee health care bill is out
By Eric Black

As promised, the last of the major congressional committees to put on the tab le their version of the health care bill, is out. It costs less, covers fewer than the House versions or the Senate Health version. It has no “public option” (but it has the co-ops). And it doesn’t seem to be attracting any Repub support.

It’s scheduled for a committee vote next week.

The WaPo piece has several more details. It’s almost exactly what was expected from Baucus. I’ll withhold any commentary or analysis for now but invite your reactions.
