White House Confident Health Reform Will Pass

Tuesday, 22 Dec 2009 11:27 AM

A White House spokesman says healthcare overhaul legislation has progressed to the point that its enactment is no longer in question.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters Tuesday that passage of a historic revamping of the nation's health system is no longer a question of if, but when. Gibbs added that he wasn't denying some issues remain to be resolved, but said the president is confident that will happen.

Democrats pushed the legislation over procedural hurdles in the Senate on Tuesday and were expecting final passage by Thursday. House-Senate bargainers would then have to complete a compromise that could be sent to President Barack Obama for his signature.

Remaining differences include how to pay for the measure and how to restrict federally financed abortions.
