Health Care bill clears key Senate test - Yahoo! News
I generally don't like making new threads on a topic already under discussion, but I think this warrants it. For better or worse, it is almost certain Obama is going to get a bill to sign. More delays will happen, more bitching by those of both sides, more lies, more rhetoric, and more namecalling is going to happen, but the long and the short of it, it looks like passage will happen. It will be very interesting to see what the final form of the bill that makes it to Obama looks like.AP 1:35 am EST
Landmark health care legislation backed by President Barack Obama passed its sternest Senate test in the pre-dawn hours early Monday, overcoming Republican delaying tactics on a 60-40 vote that all but assures its passage by Christmas.
