I could be wrong, but my understanding of how they circumvented that requirement was by using gut and amend - that is, taking an unrelated bill that had been passed by the House, stripping out the original contents of the bill, and amending the bill to include the Obamacare language.
You are correct. The Senate took The Servicemembers Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009, H.R. 3590, and stripped it.

It will be a sad day if that is allowed to "get around" this Constitutional requirement.
Why not have a judge sign a warrant to search a known crack house in East St Louis -- then go off and "modify" the warrant and search any house you please? Letter of the law? Spirit of the law? The Senate definitely violated at least one of these.
