What’s Next For Health Reform

Democratic efforts to pass reform could be complicated further if Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate Scott Brown wins tomorrow’s special election to the seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy last summer.

Nervous Democrats have already begun considering contingency plans should Brown win and deny them the 60-vote Democratic majority they have relied on to pass reform. Those plans include asking the House to approve the Senate bill without any changes so that it could be sent immediately to Obama’s desk. Democrats could then tweak the legislation during the budget process, which only requires 51 Senate votes.
