Republican Senators Discuss Efforts on Health Care Reform
In NPR interviews this week, Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) said that health care reformÂ legislation would need 75 to 80 votes in the Senate to win public confidence, and Sen. Olympia Snowe said that negotiations should focus on efforts to control costs and ensure access to affordable coverage. Enzi and Snowe are part of a bipartisan group of Senate Finance Committee members participating in negotiations.
