Senate Democrats should be able to approve health-care reform before Christmas after the legislation cleared a key hurdle along party lines early Monday morning. The 1 a.m. procedural vote went 60-40, with potential last-minute spoilers Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson both voting aye. (Nelson secured $100 million in Medicare funding for his state of Nebraska to sweeten the deal.) The bill must pass two more procedural votes, the first of which is scheduled for Tuesday morning, and the final vote is tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
