    Senate Passes Health care Bill 60 - 39

    [​IMG]

    WASHINGTON (AP)-- Senate Democrats are poised to pass a landmark health care bill that could define President Barack Obama's legacy and usher in near-universal medical coverage for the first time in the country's history.

    Ahead lie complex talks with the House to reach final legislation in the new year.

    "We stand on the doorstep of history," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. "We recognize that, but much more importantly, we stand so close to making so many individual lives better."

    After 24 consecutive days of debate -- the second-longest such stretch ever -- the final vote on the Democrats' 10-year, nearly $1 trillion bill is set for early Thursday, Christmas Eve morning. It will be the Senate's first Christmas Eve vote since 1895, when the matter at hand was a military affairs bill concerning employment of former Confederate officers, according to the Senate Historical Office.

    Democrats have demonstrated their hard-won unity by clearing three 60-vote procedural hurdles this week, the last one Wednesday afternoon, with all 58 Democrats and two independents holding together against unanimous GOP opposition.

    Final passage, requiring a simple majority, is assured. The House passed its own measure in November. The White House and Congress have now come further toward the goal of a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's health care system than any of their predecessors.

    Mkuu,

    kuna watu wanamaindi kishenzi hii kitu lakini hamna noma.
    Wenye hasira wakameze wembe, waswahili twala vyetu.
    Its Obama's time to shine as it is. The stage belongs to the
    jaluo for the next 4yrs or something like that.

    The Good book tells me the path of a righteous man are ordained
    by God and no matter the weapon fashioned ( be it republicans or
    the devil himself), it will not prevail. Thats how I see this man's
    Presidency....Daniel in the lions den. Watafungwa midomo tu
    hata kama hawataki.

    Aste aste lakini tutafika tu.

    Merry Christamas and a Happy New Year fellas.

    Regards.

    Who killed bipartisanship coalitions? It was the stupid Republicans. President Obama has reached out to them but they would rather listen to Rush Limbaugh. He has gone out of his way to accomodate their wishes on Afghanistan, but no, the hard hearted Republicans would rather see America fail than support Obama. What a shame!

    You can take "Donkeys" to the stream but you can not force them to drink the water. The donkeys have decided not to drink, by adopting a No No No No strategy to make Obama fails. The history will tell who are on the side of the people

    Refer to Senetor Whitehouse below

    Republicans are agents of perpetrators of Obama failure. Let them go to Supreme Court to show their true colors
