Democratic defeat imperils healthcare overhaul

New York Times, January 20, 2010

Scott Brown's Senate victory in Massachusetts imperiled the fate of the Democratic healthcare overhaul as House Democrats indicated they would not quickly approve a Senate-passed healthcare measure and send it to President Obama, the New York Times reports. After a meeting of House Democratic leaders, top lawmakers said they were weighing their options. But the prospect of passing the healthcare overhaul by pushing the Senate plan through the House appeared to significantly diminish, reports the Times.
