One of our congressmen voted yes, two voted no, and as President Obama prepares to sign health care reform legislation, Virginia's attorney general is preparing to file suit.
For Democrats who supported the legislation, this was a victory of historic proportions. For Republicans in opposition, this was a colossal disappointment. And it's clear that Sunday's vote will not bring the controversy or the political fight to an end.
"And it's going to help families in my district. This is going to help hospitals in my district, community health clinics in my district, and that's a good thing," said Congressman Tom Perriello.
He says he weighed the impact on working families before deciding to support the legislation.
For fellow Democrat, 9th District Congressman Rick Boucher, the equation was more complicated. He voted no, with $450 billion in Medicare cuts and the impact on seniors his top concerns.
"And I'm very concerned that when Medicare funding is reduced by this amount, the quality of care delivered to senior citizens will be diminished," said Boucher.
