Breaking a three-day stalemate, the Senate approved an amendment to
its health care legislation that would require insurance companies to
offer free mammograms and other preventive services to women.
The vote was 61 to 39, with three Republicans joining 56 Democrats and the two independents in favor.
This happened directly after the release of evidence showing that many mammograms do not pass a comparative effectiveness test. Once the test became a public issue at all…well, now you see what happens. CBO, take note.
