    The Senate & House will successfully pass a reconciled Healthcare bill

    Do you believe the Senate & House will successfully pass a reconciled Healthcare bill?

    Here's the house bill:
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3200/text

    I believe this is the current senate bill:
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s1796/show

    Right now, there are big differences between the House and Senate approaches. The House bill contains a public option; the Senate bill does not. The Senate bill contains a tax on high-value insurance plans; many in the House object to this idea. The House bill has tougher antiabortion language.

    Yes. They'll essentially just use the Senate bill, with perhaps some very minor changes.

    It will happen. To have done so much to get to this point, not getting something out of it would be unacceptable to every one involved with getting this far. There will be fighting galore, but when push comes to shove, something will be passed.

    I don't know. The House Bill is pretty radical compared to the Senate. And getting either took strenuous efforts. I'm highly certain that neither the Senate nor House would confirm each other's bills.

    Yes I believe the American Supreme Soviet will rubberstamp this death panel bill. I see that the Canadian National Health Care has now decided in their infinite wisdom not to pay for non insulin diabetic testing. Welcome to Obamaworld as they reach over and pull the plug on your life support. Of course that will be after they grab what little money you have in your pocket to fund these communist schemes.

    The communists won last night. Just buy enough votes and they will win every vote. Ain't Amerika grand?

    How many voted needed in the senate to pass reconciled version?

    They'll pass it as soon as they can get the rest of the opposition bought off.

    The House bill didn't really take that strenuous of an effort...

    If all the liberal senators who wanted a public option were willing to vote for the Senate bill, it won't be that hard to convince a majority of representatives (where the Democrats have a bigger margin of error) to support something similar. The hardest part - getting an agreement in the Senate - is behind them now.

    Is it 50 votes in the senate now for passage? If so, getting passage becomes almost trivial in both houses, just a bit of yelling in getting details ironed out.

    They still need 60 in the Senate. But assuming the final bill doesn't deviate too much from what the Senate already agreed on, I think it's a foregone conclusion at this point.

    The House only needs a simple majority, which shouldn't be difficult at all.
