The health care reform fight isn’t over. It’s just changing venues.

Mass. election stalls overhaul
With an opponent chosen, and smaller Senate ranks, Democrats spoke of going more slowly on health care.
By David Lightman and William Douglas

McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON – Democrats’ efforts to overhaul the health-care system stalled yesterday – and could be scaled back substantially – as suddenly somber lawmakers struggled to absorb Republican Scott Brown’s victory in the Massachusetts Senate race.
Brown will become the Republicans’ 41st seat when he takes office, probably in about two weeks.

If Republicans maintain their unity, as they have for months, their 41 Senate votes can block Democratic action on almost anything. Read the rest of this entry »
