As more and more keeps happening with health care, it gets harder to keep track of everything else that’s happening with Congress. To help you keep informed on both fronts, here’s today’s look at some articles and blog posts of note:

  • The House today passed the Senate’s $15 billion jobs bill. After a small change to the bill is approved by the Senate, it will go to the president to be signed into law. (The Wall Street Journal)
  • The House Ways and Means Committee experiences yet another shake-up at the top. (The Hill)
  • Sen. Robert Byrd [D, WV], of the Byrd Rule infamy, pushed back against claims that he opposed using reconciliation to change the Senate health care bill. (Politico)
  • Retiring Sen. Evan Bayh [D, IN] is now a co-sponsor of the Fair Elections Now Act allowing for public funding of federal campaigns. (The Huffington Post)
  • The Wall Street Journal has an exhaustive table detailing how every House member voted on health care. (The Wall Street Journal)
  • Marc Ambinder explains how a perfect storm of events derailed health care in Congress and how another perfect storm got it back on track. (The Atlantic)

    After personally witnessin the ruthless behaviors of the defrauders and the coy, supernatural habbit and ability of their conspiracy theories within the United States,I have totally changed my mind and I am supporting President Barack Obama’s decision to reverse his decision about trying Terrorists in Civilian Courts. The terrorists and accomplices must be tried in a Military Court. It will behelpful to identify and catch masked defrauders within it in the long process. When things are more so secret, there must be a suspicion about someone doing foul play there too. It is a good decision because it will recover everything concurrently. Everything that glitters is not Gold. We are money and equal. Fear mongering using Uniforms is not American value too.
