US Senate votes to green light historic health care reform

 WASHINGTON – (NEWS 1130) – The U-S health care bill has cleared another key hurdle.
    Early Sunday morning, and despite Republican delaying tactics, U-S senators voted to advance President Obama’s landmark legislation.
    The bill would extend coverage to 30 million Americans who currently have none, and it would stop insurance companies from denying benefits on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions.
    The vote was along party lines 60 to 40 and kept Senate Democrats on track to pass their sweeping $871 billion bill on Christmas Eve.
