Stern: Pass The Senate Bill

It's up in the air what will happen to health care now that Scott Brown won the Massachusetts Senate race, but Service Employees International Union President Andy Stern made it clear what he wants to do: pass the Senate bill.

Labor, along with fellow progressives, had long preferred the House version of health care reform, which does not include a tax on "Cadillac" health plans. That's probably part of the reason why Stern wants the bill "fixed, fixed right, and fixed right away through a parallel process."
