Health Care Debate Passes Senate 60-39

Saturday's 60-39 vote cleared the way for a full-scale debate beginning after Thanksgiving on the legislation, which is designed to extend coverage to roughly 31 million who lack it, crack down on insurance company practices that deny or dilute benefits and curtail the growth of spending on medical care nationally.
Chicago Tribune Excerpt:
The Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said the vote was anything but procedural — casting it as a referendum on the bill itself, which he said would raise taxes, cut Medicare and create a "massive and unsustainable debt."
Still fighting to deny coverage to roughly 31 million Americans and against those who want to crack down on heartless insurance company practices. Republicans, the Dr. No's of nothing.
