Massachusetts race now key to health bill

Wall Street Journal, January 19, 2010

White House and Senate Democratic officials said that they believed asking the House to pass the Senate health bill unchanged was likely to be their best hope if their party loses a Senate seat in Massachusetts. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office signaled that the House wouldn't go along with that, the Wall Street Journal reports. A defeat in Massachusetts would deprive Democrats of their filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and also could underscore the unpopularity of the health legislation, reports the Journal.
