In a rare show of bipartisanship over President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, a Senate committee voted unanimously Wednesday to exclude veterans from the 50-worker threshold that triggers required coverage for employees under that statute.The Senate Finance Committee vote was 26-0, a departure from the usual party-line fights over Obama’s showcase 2010 law.Yet senators’ comments suggested that party-line battling over many aspects of the statute — and other laws — could erupt when the measure reaches the full Senate.
