House Votes 220-215 to Pass Democrat-Backed Health Care Reform Bill
WASHINGTON - Triumphant Democrats steered landmark health care legislation to the brink of passage in the House late Saturday night, spurred by a summons from President Barack Obama to "answer the call of history" and expand coverage to millions who lack it.
The House approved an abortion amendment and rejected a Republican substitute for the legislation, paving the way to final passage.
After months of struggle, Speaker Nancy Pelosi projected confidence and likened the bill to the creation of Social Security in 1935 and Medicare 30 years later....
Not only must it pass the Senate, but the House version has to be reconciled to the Senate version. So the Senate may squash this rotten fruit altogether or they may deduct or add to it's rotteness. Quien Sabe?
