US House Votes on Healthcare with Different Tone
WH.gov: US House Votes on Healthcare with Different Tone
A contentious bill came before the U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday. House members voted to repeal the nation's new health care reform law -- an issue championed by President Barack Obama. Some say the debate this week has been more civil because of the recent Arizona shootings that killed six and seriously wounded a congresswoman who supported the healthcare bill. But as VOA's Carolyn Presutti reports, the issue has stirred emotions from the beginning and will continue to do so.
