Senate healthcare reform bill passes another hurdle

Washington Post, December 22, 2009

The Senate cleared the second of three key procedural hurdles on President Obama's healthcare legislation early Tuesday with another party-line vote, continuing the effort to pass the bill before Christmas. All 60 members of the Democratic caucus supported the measure to finalize amendments to the healthcare package, while 39 Republicans opposed it. A third procedural vote is expected Wednesday, with final passage of the bill likely to come late on Christmas Eve.
