Brown Votes with Majority to Pass Health Care Reform Measure
The only Ohio member of the Senate health committee today voted with the majority to pass legislation to revamp health care, becoming the first congressional committee to act on President Barack Obama’s goal of overhauling the system this year.
Ohio U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown was among the 13 members of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee to vote for the $600 billion measure. Ten voted against.
Brown described the measure as an “investment in the security” of families and the economy.
