Dew Tour

A couple members of The Insurance Center were able to attend the Dew Tour at Snowbasin this year. They even cheered on Ogden native Lynn Neil who competed at the event. Both had a good time and enjoyed the amazing abilities of the athletes that participated.

Stalled Health Care Reform

Scott Brown wins in Mass Senate Race and evens the stake in the Senate. Now Democrats don’t have total control and are without the needed 60 votes that would have passed the healthcare reform bill. President Obama will have to come up with bipartisan health reform in order to get it passed. Many are saying the current bill should be scrapped and they should start from scratch to create a new bill that both parties can agree on. Only time will tell what the outcome will be.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! The new year brings about the task of the Senate and the House merging their versions of the Health Care Refrom bill into one. According to UAIIA a House and Senate Democratic Leadership committee are formed and once they come to an agreement on a compromise bill, they will likely send the bill to the House for a simple majority vote and then the Senate where Democratic Leadership will once again need 60votes to fend off a filibuster from Republicans. Pending passage of both chambers, the bill will be sent to the President for his signature and then become law.
