“Barack Obama will pass health care reform, demonstrating whose side we’re on.”
Connecticut Rep. John Larson, chairman of the Democratic Caucus, said Sunday morning that “we have the votes” to pass health care reform legislation in the House.
Speaking on ABC’s This Week, Larson said, “We are going to make history today. Not since President Roosevelt passed Social Security, Lyndon Johnson passed Medicare, and today, Barack Obama will pass health care reform, demonstrating whose side we’re on.”
The House is scheduled to begin debate at 1 p.m. eastern time Sunday with votes on the legislation expected to start about 6 p.m
