Handicapping Health Care Reform

Monday, January 25, 2010

The Senate's robust health care reform bill is in jepoardy after Massachusetts elected Republican Scott Brown to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the death of Senator Ted Kennedy. David Leonhardt, economics columnist for our partner The New York Times, says there are really only two scenarios left at this point — and they hinge on whether the House will decide to forgive what members percieve as mistreatment by their colleagues in the Senate, and pass the bill.

There's a lot on the line for President Obama, who gives his State of the Union Address on Wednesday night. David Leonhardt tells us what we'll need to look for in the president's address.
