Democratic Party chairman Tim Kaine says he expects the health care overhaul will be passed and he's not worried worry about Republican threats to make it a premier issue in this year's midterm elections.

Interviewed Wednesday on CBS's "The Early Show," Kaine said, "If they want to run a campaign of bring back the day of kicking people off because of pre-existing conditions,' I relish it."

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell had declared Democrats will enact the plan at their own political peril, vowing to make it an issue in every congressional race this fall. Kaine said he considers the picture of "Republicans fighting health care" to be a political asset for Democrats as they try to retain their control of Congress.
