Health Care Reform has passed

Democrats in the House of Representatives approved the Senate health reform bill Sunday night by a straight party line vote of 219 to 210, sending the legislation to President Barack Obama for his signature. The vote marks the climactic finale to a yearlong attempt by Democrats to enact Obama’s signature legislative goal – expanding health insurance to nearly all Americans, a goal that eluded the party for decades. No Republicans voted yes, and 34 Democrats voted no.
