S.88 passes 9-2 in House Healthcare Committee

S.88 passed the House Committee on Healthcare today! They will be taking it up today and tomorrow in House Appropriations and we expect it to be voted by the full House of Representatives next week. The Committee decided to add their entire committee bill to S.88, which means that they added a number of their cost-containment other provisions. Still intact is the core part of the Senate version of S.88 which would design implementation plans for a system that truly establishes healthcare for all by 2012. We need to keep up the momentum. Please contact your legislator at www.workerscenter.org/takeaction and help us build for a huge rally on May 1st at the Statehouse (see: www.workerscenter.org/may1 )
