Senate Vote Ends Debate on Health Care Bill


Will a new Health Care Reform Bill be Unwrapped on Christmas Eve?

This morning’s 60-40 Senate vote clears a path towards passage of the Senate’s health care reform bill. As expected, the votes were cast 100% down party lines and may now lead to a passage in the Senate on Christmas Eve.

All of this occurred as I was making tamales with my family so I missed the final historic vote. But I had the sense that each delightful fork full of food and the accompanying sigh and smile were for a larger reason.

We haven’t reached the “giant leap” to health care reform yet but we must relish the small steps that will lead us there.
