Eye On Boise

Fallout from health care reform vote

Both of Idaho’s representatives, Mike Simpson and Walt Minnick, voted against the health care reform bill in the House over the weekend, while the two split on a stringent anti-abortion amendment that was added to the bill at the last minute; Simpson voted in favor, Minnick against. Here’s a link to Simpson’s statement on his vote on the overall bill; here’s one to Minnick’s on the bill and on the amendment; and here are links to commentary on how this is playing out from political historian Randy Stapilus and from Idaho Statesman editorial page editor Kevin Richert.
