CNN.com is reporting that the Senate Finance Committee has voted 14-9 in favor of a plan that would bring coverage to an estimated 29 million Americans at a projected cost of $829 billion over ten years. See the CNN story here.
Maine Republican Senator Olympia Snowe crossed party lines to lend her support to the committee’s proposal and, in doing so, was the only Republican to vote in favor.
