House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “that before the House acts on final health care legislation, leaders are waiting for costs assessments from the Congressional Budget Office, and information from the Senate parliamentarian,” CNN reports.
Specifically, House leaders want to know “what the Senate will be able to do” in a reconciliation bill meant to make fixes to the underlying health care bill.
The Daily Caller quotes Pelosi: “It’s all up to the CBO. We don’t know anything until they tell us. It’s really the strangest thing because so much of this is not very new, so we thought we’d get it back sooner. But anyway, they do their very careful work and I respect that.”
