The Senate Finance Committee completed their debate on their own version of health care reform just past 2:00 am on Friday.
The proposal does not include the “public option” where the government would run an insurance program meant to compete with and control the cost of private insurance premiums. Once the Congressional Budget Office provides a cost estimate, the committee will vote on the final version next week, according to the New York Times.
