Obama Gets a Senate Healthcare Bill for Christmas

Hosted by

It's down to a few days and a few procedural votes – by Christmas Eve, the Senate is expected to pass its version of a long-awaited healthcare reform bill. The legislation has caused rancor in the Senate and is filled with compromises that aren't in the House version of the bill. When the House and Senate sit down to reconcile their two pieces of legislation, what will the final bill look like? What's the political cost of reaching an agreement on reform?
