After several days of waiting and seeing what would happen with the Senate’s jobs bill, the House decided in a lopsided 417-1 vote on Thursday evening to approve the measure (HR 3962) that would postpone (until Nov. 30) a 21% cut in Medicare and TRICARE reimbursements to physicians. The approved bill was then sent to the White House for President Obama’s signature.
