Talking Points Memo has an interesting piece on Capuano’s apparent feelings on the Senate Health Care Bill.
After reading the letter, I have a hard time seeing how the headline is accurate. Capuano has troubles with the Senate version of the bill, and he doesn’t trust (and for good reason) the Senate to try and fix any of the problems.
In this instance, it requires the House to adopt the Senate bill and then trust that the Senate will pass, and the President will sign the reconciled bill that “fixes” any problems in the existing Senate bill. There is great risk in this course of action.
Yes, there is.
