No Imminent Compromise On Health Reform Bill

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming says the Senate Finance Committee is making a lot of progress but remains far from close to a compromise on health care reform.

Enzi is one of six committee members - three Republicans and three Democrats - who've been trying to hash out a compromise on a health care bill.

Enzi says no deal is at hand. He says it's easy to get Democrats and Republicans to agree to things in principle. But he says things get more complicated when it comes to the details of the legislation and who's going to pay for it.

No vote on health care is expected in the Senate until at least September. Enzi says it's important not to rush the legislation in part because it affects everyone in the country.
