Senate Passes Health Care Overhaul Bill

Washington--The Senate voted in the wee hours this morning to overhaul the nation's health
care system, by passing a bill to guarantee health insurance for
Americans that President Obama hopes will rein in health costs.

The vote came on the 25th straight day of debate on healthcare legislation and 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.
