Title V on it’s way to President’s desk

The Medicare bill containing a one year extension of Title V has just cleared the Senate.

The bill was already approved by the House, so the one year extension of Title V now goes to the President for signature.

The President had threatened to veto the bill (because of concerns about changes to the Medicare program, unrelated to Title V), but the bill garnered veto proof margins in both the House and the Senate.  It is not clear at this point what President Bush will do with the bill, but we should know more soon.
