Wall Street Journal, August 4, 2009

Senate Democrats won't hesitate to forgo bipartisanship to pass a health overhaul bill if negotiations fail in the next month, Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, said. Schumer indicated that Democratic leaders are actively exploring options to pass the health bill that wouldn't require Republican votes. He pointed specifically to budget reconciliation, a parliamentary tactic that would allow passage of a bill with a simple majority.
