Health-care moves

The Senate Finance Committee will delay its vote on health-care legislation until next week, while it awaits an analysis of the bill’s cost from the Congressional Budget Office.

The Senate Finance Committee will delay its vote on health-care legislation until next week, while it awaits an analysis of the bill’s cost from the Congressional Budget Office. The bill is almost sure to clear the Democratic-majority committee, but prospects are less certain in the full Senate, where senators are likely to clash over whether the final bill should include a “public option.”

The latest AP poll on health care shows reform picking up support, with 40 percent in favor and 40 percent opposed. In September, 49 percent opposed reform while only 34 percent supported it. Reform also picked up support from prominent Republicans, including California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Sen. Bill Frist.
