Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) today said health care reform will pass no matter the outcome of today's special election in Massachusetts.
He told Minnesota Public Radio
that reform will pass "one way or the other." (Franken also posted a link
to the story on his Senate site.)
If the Republican candidate for Senate wins today, Democrats will lose their 60-seat super-majority. Some say that loss will kill health care reform for good.
But Democrats have other options -- having the House pass the Senate bill verbatim, or forcing a merged bill through via reconciliation -- and some, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
, have vowed it'll get done somehow.
