Top Senate Dem Says He Has Votes for Health Bill

Saturday, 20 Mar 2010 04:34 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he has enough votes to push changes in the health care overhaul bill through the Senate.

House leaders expect to pass the Senate's version of the legislation on Sunday.

House Democrats want to make changes in that bill — and those fixes will come a different measure that would require the Senate's OK.

House Democrats have been worried that their changes might die in the Senate and leave representatives vulnerable to campaign attacks.

But Reid, D-Nev., was at a meeting of House Democrats on Saturday and tried to reassure them.

He said he had "the commitment of a significant majority" to help send health care legislation to the White House.
