Pressure is Coming down on Congress to Pass Healthcare Reform

This article in the Washington Post highlights how Vice President Joe Biden has warned Congress that if they do not agree on healthcare soon the opportunity for a "sweeping overhaul of the $2.5 trillion system will be lost for a generation."

Obama's team have been long pressing lawmakers to reach an agreement and to pass the bill. The bill has been passed by the House of Representatives but has struggled to reach 60 votes that the Democrats need. With each passing day that the bill is not passed the number of uninsured Americans increase.
