The Health Care Debate

Every morning at work, I have the same routine.  I turn on my computer and go to SHRM’s web site to see what the news of the day is.  Below was one of today’s lead-in stories:

“After nearly three months of behind-the-scenes maneuvers, a bipartisan summit and numerous speeches, the final vote by Congress on health care reform legislation appears imminent.  According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the vote could come as early as Saturday, March 20, 2010, which at least one observer said was setting up a showdown of “epic proportions.”  If you’re a SHRM member, you can read the full article here.
