Dean hopes health bill can be fixed after Senate vote
Dr. Howard Dean wouldn’t vote for the Senate’s health care bill but he isn’t giving up on the process. After the Senate passes their bill, Dean hopes that provisions in the House’s versions of the bill can be combined with the Senate bill to create major health care reform.
“I would certainly not vote for this bill if this were the final product, but the House bill is quite a good bill. This bill is improved over the last couple of weeks. I would let this thing go to conference committee and let’s see if we can fix it some more,” Dean told NBC’s David Gregory Sunday.
