The U.S. Senate passed its version of a health care reform bill strictly along party lines, as expected.
The bill passed in the Senate is largely similar to that passed in the House earlier this year, but differences between the two bills must be resolved in negotiation between the two chambers before a final bill reaches President Barack Obama’s desk.
The bill passed on a party-line vote, 60-39.
