President Obama has asked House Democrats to pass the healthcare reform bill today in a rare Saturday session. The Representatives are still debating the bill, with a vote expected around midnight.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D -CA) says she believes she has enough votes to pass the bill. The legislation hopes to help 36 million uninsured Americans afford health insurance, but it is meeting fierce opposition from Republicans who want government to stay out of health insurance. If passed, the Senate will then debate the bill before to two chambers revise the bill together.
