Dems Announce They Have the 218 Votes to Ram Through Nationalized Health Care

The Hill reported:

Democratic leaders believe they have the votes to pass their historic, $1 trillion healthcare plan Saturday night, Democratic sources said.

“We have the votes,” said a senior Democratic aide.

Though leaders feel comfortable, the margin is narrow. Aides said leaders are confident they have the 218 votes they need, but at the very least they want to find a 219th vote so that no one member can be considered the decisive vote.
