Beltway Happenings   ...1 of 4 >
March 21, 2009--After a year of discussion, debate, negotiating, manuvering and speechifying, health care reform--now know as health insurance reform, or to opponents as Obamacare--came to a vote in the House.  Specifically the House voted on Senate amendments to H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and H.R. 4872, the Reconciliation Act of 2010.  Outside hundreds of protesters, including many Tea Partiers, urged members to "kill the bill."

Democratic members make their way into the chamber.
