What's the status of HCR?
I'm uncertain where things stand on the Health Care reform situation...

On the one hand, I've heard that the House passed the bill, and now it's going to the Prez to be signed into law.

On the other hand, I've heard there were compromises and the Senate Leadership is planning on using the Reconciliation process to get things through the Senate.

These things don't sound 100% compatible to me.

The only way to reconcile these two is if the House passed two bills, one being the Senate Bill unamended and the other being effectively an amendment to the now-passed legislation, which the Senate has to approve in order to become law. But I fail to see how that can go directly to the Budget Reconciliation process.

Does anyone know what's really going on?
