The New York Times reports:

"The Gang of Six -- the three Democrats and three Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee who are writing a health care bill -- have set their first formal August recess teleconference for 9 p.m. on Thursday.

'Bipartisan progress continues,' Senator Max Baucus, the Montana Democrat and chairman of the committee, said in a statement."

Sen. Baucus added, "Our group will be meeting tomorrow, and our staffs continue to meet as well. I am confident we will continue our steady progress toward health care reform that will lower costs and provide quality, affordable coverage to all Americans."
