  • House Democrats Eke Out A Victory On Health Reform [Commentary] (NASE Staff Blog) - "The House bill is important because it sets the stage for what might be in a final reform bill.

  • Entrepreneurs In Congress Say No To Health Care Reform (NY Times - You're The Boss Blog) -"[Whether] Republican or Democrat, they overwhelmingly voted against the health care reform bill that passed late Saturday."
  • Health Care Reform: You'll Learn To Love It (Politics Daily) - "I know you conservatives are upset about the health care reform bill clearing the House, but let me spin it another way for you."
