enate Vote On Health Care Reform:Senate Health Care Vote – Senate health care vote results are in.The Senate has voted (by a vote of 60 vote yea to 39 nay) to allow the healthcare reform bill to come to the floor for debate.Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) secured the vital 60th vote by persuading Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) with some funds for her state.But it is not over because Lincoln said:
“I have concluded that it is more important to begin this debate rather than just simply drop the issue and walk away.I’m not afraid of that debate. I’ve already alerted the Leader and I’m promising my colleagues that I’m prepared to vote against moving to the next stage of consideration as long as a government run public option is included.
Reid said after the vote:
“Tonight’s vote is not the end of the debate. It’s only the beginning,”
Tonight’s vote sets the stage for the epic December showdown over health care legislation.
