    Senate Passes Health Care Overhaul Bill
    WASHINGTON ó The Senate voted Thursday to reinvent the nationís health care system, passing a bill to guarantee access to health insurance for tens of millions of Americans and to rein in health costs as proposed by President Obama.

    The 60-to-39 party-line vote, on the 25th straight day of debate on the legislation, brings Democrats a step closer to a goal they have pursued for decades. It clears the way for negotiations with the House, which passed a broadly similar bill last month by a vote of 220 to 215.

    If the two chambers can strike a deal, as seems likely, the resulting product would vastly expand the role and responsibilities of the federal government. It would, as lawmakers said repeatedly in the debate, touch the lives of nearly all Americans.

    PBS: Bill Moyers Journal - "Once the White House made this deal with the insurance companies, the public option was never going to be anything more than a fig leaf."

    It is yet to happen, but it will be available in the future.
