Senate Democrats gain 60th vote for passage of Healthcare Bill

"Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) plans to vote for health-care reform, giving Democratic leaders the required 60 votes and putting the Senate on track to pass the bill by Christmas, a top congressional source said. The House, which has already passed a health-reform bill, and Senate would have to reconcile their versions in January. Leaders hope to send a final bill to President Barack Obama's desk before his State of the Union address in late January or early February."
