The final showdown: Senate vote on health-care fixes

On Thursday March 25, the U.S. Senate approved a package of revisions to the Senate health-care bill signed into law by President Obama earlier in the week. Because the Senate parliamentarian eliminated two minor provisions, the reconciliation package must go back to the U.S. House of Representatives for a final vote. House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer said the chamber planned to take it up later in the day (see how the House voted on March 21). The package would then go to Obama to sign into law.
