Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this afternoon announced which Senate Democrats will attend the bipartisan health care summit at the White House this Thursday.
Reid will attend, joined by Sens. Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Patty Murray, Max Baucus, Chris Dodd, Tom Harkin, Jay Rockefeller and Kent Conrad.
The White House invited Democratic and Republican leadership in both houses, and allowed the leaders to invite a handful of colleagues.
Reid also praised President Obama’s health care proposal, released today.
“The President’s health reform proposal brings together the best of the Senate bill and the best of the House bill in a fiscally responsible way,” he said in a statement.
