New York's Say on Health Care
November 9th, 2009

If it were up to New York, the health care bill in Washington would have been approved by a much wider margin. The vast majority of the state’s 29 members of Congress said “ay.” (The Empire State’s Congressional Delegation approved the bill 24 to 5. The final vote in the house was 220 to 215.)

A full breakdown is below.

Also check out our series this week — “New York and the Health Care Debate” — where members of our State Legislature and several experts opine on what health care reform could mean for New York.
